Synopsis: It's late at night, and the cheerful chatter of Moth, Frog, Cricket, and Mockingbird keeps a restless child awake. But the friendly wind and a cooperative cloud intervene to quiet all nighttime melodies and deliver a gentle "Good night."

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Assign roles and simple costumes, and re-enact the story.
•  Draw what it is like outside your window at night.

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don’t have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
