School’s First Day of School meets Good Night, Gorilla in this irresistible bedtime story about School getting ready to go to sleep!
As the sun sets, a security guard arrives to help this sleepy little school get some rest. From tucking in chairs to checking all the locks to listening to the silverware snoring, she makes her moonlit rounds. One by one, the lights are turning off and everyone is turning in. Well, everyone except for the turtle from 2A. Will this escapee make it back to bed on time?
Bailey's lusciously lyrical and dreamy story expertly peels back the curtain for the littlest readers who ever wondered what happens to school at night, making Goodnight School the perfect pick for early childhood educators, back-to-school, and, of course, bedtime.
