(From the back cover)
Saying good night and being thankful are two important parts of a loving bedtime routine. Families play a vital role in building and supporting children’s sense of security and comfort. Through sequencing events of which children can expect to follow every night, parents help to develop a feeling of relaxation, transitioning their children to a night of restful sleep. This bedtime story is one with a poetic quality with soothing illustrations and design, which help to carry readers along their own special journey of making special memories with their families.
“My most favorite time with children has always been those twilight moments where the wiggles and giggles give way to their softer, more contemplative side. Winding down for bedtime always gave me a peek into their day, and the ever-increasing growth of their heart and imagination. Warm cuddle time fosters their appreciation, and provides a wonderful opportunity to learn and express gratitude. Not only does Grateful for You, Good Night help you to do just that, it also opens the joys of the sweeter side of parenting. Illustrations by Jacqueline L. Challiss Hill provide a loving visual stage for the text to dance upon, and together make a great nighttime routine.” ~ Darleen Wohlfeil, Story Monsters Ink magazine
“Mrs. Hoffman has captured the feelings that parents have when putting their children to bed. It is a treasured time that creates and embeds memories that will last a lifetime. After reading this lovely children’s book, I was taken back to all of the evenings that I had when it was bedtime for my children. This time is so special for all parties. As an educator, I was pleasantly surprised with how the book had rhythmic oral patterns that made it fun to read aloud. The illustrations in the book lend a hypnagogic quality that made me want more. This book will be one to stand the test of time, and it will be an instant favorite for children, parents and grandparents alike.” ~ Charlotte Parker, M.Ed., Special Education Director and Behavior Specialist
