Goodnight, You by Geneviève Côté

Piggy and Bunny are camping out for the first time.  Do you remember the first time you went camping?  All the funny noises; how dark it was?

Kids Can Press and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published, so you can grab a copy now.

This is a sweet simple book for young ones.  Piggy and Bunny make fun of the dangers of camping out by teasing each other.  As they are getting ready for bed, Piggy tells Bunny about his secret fear.  Bunny doesn't make fun of him and promises him he will take care of him.  It's a good thing to have friends who listen and will help you conquer your fears.  

This is a good basic message for children.  It also demonstrates how sharing a fear makes it be less.  It's easy to read so young ones can enjoy it.  I like this series.  Simple illustrations and simple messages with good common sense.  Give them a try with your young one.
