Review: Goodnight, You by Geneviève Côté


SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:
Piggy and Bunny are having their first campout. As the shadows loom larger, Piggy and Bunny playfully imagine scary scenarios and how they might deal with them. It's all good fun, until Piggy reveals a secret fear. This sweetly humorous story shines a light on ways young friends can acknowledge each other's worries and enjoy new experiences. Goodnight, You is the fourth book in the Piggy and Bunny series, which features endearing tales that celebrate friendship and encourage individuality and self-acceptance.
MY TAKE:
I remember liking the Starring Me and You book from this series, so I was excited to start reading this book.

In Goodnight, You, Piggy and Bunny are at a campout and end up discussing how they would deal with a monster. Later on, Piggy shares one of his fears with Bunny who helps him realize that there's nothing to fear.

While I like Starring Me and You better than this book, I still think that this is a pretty good book. The same watercolor-pencil-like medium is used and Piggy and Bunny are as cute as ever. The story is also entertaining, especially when it got to the part wherein Piggy shared his fear. That part was adorable.

Thanks to NetGalley and Kids Can Press for the e-ARC. Publication date of Goodnight, You is on September 1, 2014.

THE GOOD:

  1. The book uses the same gorgeous-looking drawing style and medium.
  2. The story is charming.
  3. It's something that parents and their children can both enjoy. 

THE BAD:

  1. Some may want a little more action in the story. 

FAVORITE QUOTE/S:
I can step back and tickle its nose.
READ IT IF:

  1. Your child is going on a campout.
  2. You enjoyed the other books in the series.
  3. You like children's books that are charming and beautifully drawn.
