Nighty-Night, Cooper (Hardcover)
When it's time for good night, don't just close your eyes! Mama and Cooper have a sweet surprise. With new songs to sing (you may know the tunes . . . ), Bedtime is special for these kangaroos. Cooper just can't fall asleep! But Mama has an idea. Setting new stories to familiar tunes, Mama shares six new lullabies with her not-so-sleepy son. Which Kanga will be the first one to dreamland? This merry story—with original lullabies—was created by the talented author of If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, Laura Numeroff. The sonorous text is paired with art by illustrator Lynn Munsinger--known for her kid-friendly characters like Tacky the Penguin and Wodney Wat. Pair this with Lots of Lambs for another Numeroff/Munsinger treat!

"As lullabies go, the familiar tunes with the new lyrics may just keep sleepyheads entertained for a few go-rounds, and sleep can wait."
"Numeroff strikes just the right balance of silly and sweet as she injects fresh thinking into six musical chestnuts . . . As always, Munsinger's anthropomorphized animals are quietly marvelous, exuding tenderness, sly comedy, and astute observation."
"This offering by a well-known duo is sure to become a well-known, well-sung favorite."
"A witty conclusion will leave both adults and children smiling."
