This interactive French import illustrates a number of common bedtime routines.

The interactions begin on the cover, where a white bunny in green PJs lies on its bed, and children can slide the curtain across the window, changing the scene from day to night; bunny will also be awake or asleep accordingly. Cute and friendly-looking anthropomorphic animals describe their typical evenings on the interior. A little tiger chooses a story, brushes its teeth, puts on its pajamas, and slides under the covers. Readers choose which of two pairs of pajamas it should wear by sliding the sturdy tab. In another scene a bird family readies for bed, with Mommy singing a lullaby and Daddy reading a book. Again, readers are asked to slide the tab to choose one of two princess stories. A sheep tells children, “I count sheep to help me sleep.” Children can spin a wheel to see sheep jumping over a gate. As a koala sleeps cuddling a raccoon, “Outside, the moon and stars shine bright.” By sliding the tab little ones can make the stars shine. On the last spread some illustrations depict bedtime objects—a soft toy (here called Lovely), a pillow, slippers, and a bed. Other illustrations ask a question, with the answer revealed by lifting a flap.

Nothing new but sweet enough. (Board book. 1-3)
