Part lullaby, part love song, this perfectly pitched bedtime book gives a nod to its classic predecessors as it champions the vibrant independent spirit of local bookstores.

Join the Little Bookstore's friendly staff as they draw the curtain on another busy day of browsing and matchmaking. Choose a bedtime story, say your good nights, and pet the shop's feline mascot on your way out. Snuggle up to a loved one for a read-aloud, then drift off to sweet dreams of adventure and enchantment to come. Drawing on the best tradition of classic bedtime books, Amy Cherrix's lilting text brims with sound play, soothing patterns, and repetition, while E. B. Goodale's bright, inclusive artwork offers people-watching at its best, conjuring the bustling, ineffable mood of a homespun hall of treasures. Penned by a bookseller and illustrated with warmth and zeal, this cozy homage to the neighborhood bookshop ends with a gallery of bookstores around the world, encouraging local engagement and offering a gentle reminder that books are gifts that keep giving, the most comforting treasure of all.

Amy Cherrix is a writer, freelance children’s book editor, and former children’s book buyer at a fiercely independent bookstore. She is the author of In the Shadow of the Moon; Animal Architects, illustrated by Chris Sasaki; and two acclaimed Scientists in the Field titles, Backyard Bears and Eye of the Storm, among others. She lives in North Carolina.
