Good Night, Sister

Penguin Workshop. Feb. 2023. 32p. Tr $18.99. ISBN 9780593385814.
K-Gr 2–A cute book featuring sisterly bonds. Older sister Kat is finally moving into her own room. Younger sister Tina is nervous and scared about having to sleep in their old room by herself. Kat shares her stuffies and tells Tina how each stuffie has a “magical” power that will help Tina when she feels afraid or alone. The text is simple, with several sentences on each page. The rhyme that Kat teaches Tina to call on the magic of the stuffies is clunky. The digital illustrations feature whimsical detail with clouds, stars, and fluffy blankets. The sisters are both depicted as white.
VERDICT There really isn’t much here; an additional purchase to fill out sibling shelves.
