Goodnight, rubber duckie.
Thank you for the scrub.
Goodnight to the bubbles,
Sliding down the tub.
As a little boy says goodnight to the things and people in his world, he remembers to offer a thankful nighttime prayer to God.

- Review by Jamie
And now I want red beans and rice.
Anyway, as you can see, I have a special place in my heart for any children’s book that starts with Goodnight…and Goodnight, Angels by Melody Carlson continues this trend. Although reading it to my cat isn’t nearly as fun as reading it to my nieces.
Just kidding internet. I didn’t read my cat a bedtime story. Y’all, for a season, not a reason.
The illustrations are adorable and the story a fun one. I can see my niece saying goodnight to every single thing like the little boy in the book! From rubber duckies, to his toys, to his parents, this sweet little boy makes sure he covers them all.
What I love about simple children’s books is the way they teach lessons in such easy to understand manners. Saying goodnight to their favorite things, being thankful and the love of family are blessings and what a wonderful little book to share with your children, grandchildren, nephews, nieces and any other little kiddies in your life!
How about you? What were some of your favorite bedtime stories growing up?
