Goodnight Already by Jory John - ADVISABLE

John, Jory  Goodnight Already! Illustrated by Benji Davies. PICTUREBOOK. Harper Collins, 2015. $17.99. Content: G. 

Bear is very sleepy, but his neighbor Duck is wide awake and wants Bear to be awake, too!  Can the neighbors (especially duck) learn to respect each other’s needs?  

Told in dialogue - indicated by font size rather than speech bubbles, this simple story about getting along is very funny.  The illustrations are delightful. A great example of voice and will make an entertaining read aloud.
