“One night when the stars were out and the moon was bright, a baby said, ‘No go sleep!’” First the baby’s parents try to convince the baby that it’s time for bed, then the sun, moon, and stars take a turn. A car driving by weighs in (“Beep, beep, sleep, sleep”), then birds, frogs, bunnies, and other creatures of the natural world. The front door (“I’m closed until morning”), the goldfish, even the shoes and the baby’s toys know it’s time to say goodnight. Still the baby says, “NO!” But all that resistance proves exhausting in the end in this fresh, unsentimental picture book. With lovely writing full of unexpected moments, Kate Feiffer’s wonderful words are paired with Jules Feiffer’s balanced, beautifully composed illustrations that echo both the humor and comfort conveyed by the narrative. Highly Commended, 2013 Charlotte Zolotow Award  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
