For most young readers, Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown was a treasured story for bedtime. I remember many nights curled up with my mom, showing off my ever-expanding reading skills. After a while, it was less reading and more memorizing the rhymes as the visions of the cow jumping over the moon and many a red balloon danced before me.
Younger children love rhymes and pictures that go along with a story. And bedtime is the perfect moment to bring these to life while instilling simple messages of comfort and love in your little ones. The Houston Rodeo inspires dreams of becoming cowboys and cowgirls, so why not combine these with a reading tradition?
The Good Night series by Glenn Dromgoole, illustrations by Barbra Clack, brings natural wonders to life by having your child bid good night to all the animals, prairies and skies of the western world. From Good Night Cowgirl:
Good night jackrabbit and horned toad.
Armadillo, crossing the road.
Good night mountain. Prairie and plain.
Good night soft clouds.
Good night rain.
Good night sunset in the western sky.
Good night stars so bright and high.
Good night friends and family, too.
Good night cowgirl–I love you.
Hug your little cowpoke close tonight as you read with them from the Good Night series, creating memories with new bedtime traditions.
