In this sweet bedtime book, Maggie and three friends have a sleepover! We follow the rhythm from the bubbly, silly excitement of a first sleepover to a peaceful, sleepy bedtime. With everyone finally tucked in, they reflect on the many things in their day that make them thankful.
Thank You and Good Night will instill a wonderful message of gratitude to little ones and their grown ups.— From Holiday Picks 2015
An homage to classic bedtime stories and their creators, from a Caldecott Honor recipient and bestselling artist!
