Edwards, Richard: Good Night, Copycub.

Edwards, Richard GOOD NIGHT, COPYCUB. II. by Susan Winter. ISBN 0-06-056671-X. New York: HarperCollins, 2004.32 pp. $15.99. Richard Edwards presents a delightful variant of a goodnight book for young children. After a busy day with his mother, Copycub is having difficulty falling asleep. Despite trying a number of different ways to fall asleep, Copycub eventually wakes his mother, who tells him a wonderful story of a walk in the woods. During their story walk, mother bear and Copycub encounter a sleeping goose, moose, and hare. Mother bear asks Copycub, "Who's good at copying?" Copycub remembers back to the story walk, copies the sleeping animals, and eventually falls asleep. The story is a very developmentally appropriate way for young children to be comforted and engage in a goodnight routine. The illustrations are pleasant and inviting; this book will be a welcome addition to a young child's library. Ages 4-8. Reviewed by Stacey Neuharth-Pritchett, University of Georgia, Athens, GA
