Every night, under the same sky and stars, probably since the emergence of humankind, people around the world have been wishing one another a good night. 

This book is aimed at children aged 3 to 120, the age when curiosity about the world around them emerges. It will allow you and your child to know how to say "Good Night" in other languages and places across the globe. Sometimes it sounds funny, other times familiar or similar, and in some case it challenges our tongues and sounds totally foreign. 

The book was beautifully illustrated by Yuval Israeli, focusing our attention on the kingdom of the night, the same skies and stars.

15 Ways to say Good Night - volume 1, illustrated by Yuval Israeli

"15 Ways to say Good night is a beautifully illustrated book which just begs to be read aloud. Each nation’s good night greeting is rendered in simple text, with a reminder of land and continent. And each good night is illustrated with child and alien staring at a sky that quietly reminds us of culture and place. The pictures invite questions and answers. The text invites careful repetition. And child and alien pleasingly take their place, side by side, friends with all the world and more, wishing goodness to all...Highly recommended, this is a beautiful book, easy to read, and the sort of book adults will love to reread as their child begs for more."

 

 

"Splendid, inventive hand-drawn illustrations I really enjoyed in a clever concept that became even better the deeper in, and when I finished I promptly paged backwards to pick up the little nuances I might have otherwise missed like a steaming tea kettle, a flowered lei or roaming critters I might have otherwise missed that made the book for me. Very good children's book and one I would recommend!"
