The residents of Sleepytown are hard at work, and soon they will wind down their day and head off to sleep. But first, kids will visit with them and say good-night. This cute rhyming book visits the mayor, the farmers, the police officers, teachers, and others as they work to care for the residents of Sleepytown. Each two-page spread ends with the refrain, “Night night, {persons, and other persons}, too! Thank you all for what you do.”

Night Night, Sleepytown shows a happy and positive scene of each person’s role in the community, expressing gratitude for everyone mentioned. It also helps to put kids in the mood for sleep as parents read it to them before bed. The closing note thanks God for looking down on Sleeptown, which is an easy prompt for kids to be reminded to say their bedtime prayers. This cute book is perfect for bedtime routines.
