Every proper bedtime is a ritual, is it not? Lala’s is no exception. This adorable little one can’t get to bed without first wishing every other creature a good night. Sound familiar?
Her gentle journey to bed, framed by the changing colors of twilight to starlight enveloping her village, effortlessly soothe. Sweet dreams, peaceful reader.
— From Claudia's Picks

Description


Caldecott Honor-winner Rachel Isadora's stunning oil paintings illustrate this delightful bedtime tale, set on the African plains.

The sun has set and the moon is rising, and that means it's bedtime. But not if Lala has a say--because she's not ready to go to sleep First she needs to say good night to the cat. And the goat. And the chickens. And, and, and . . . Lala's adorable stalling strategy will ring true for all parents whose little ones aren't ready to say goodbye to the day--and all will appreciate the wonderful culmination to the bedtime ritual.
