Author Jory John easily handles the dry humor that has taken over children’s literature in recent years. Duck’s energetic appeals will have even the littlest pajama-clad readers laughing. John’s tale offers plenty for readers of all ages. Kids will laugh … parents will commiserate. Both young and old will anticipate–and appreciate–the ending’s twist. Most kids go through a favorite-book phase; break the boredom with Bear and Duck. From kid-friendly dialogue to sleepy-time-friendly illustrations, Goodnight Already! will be an oft-requested book. — BookPage, December 2, 2014
The pictures and the comic relief keep both engaged during bedtime. It totally cracks us up. Highly recommend! Meet Bear. He’s exhausted. All he wants is to go to sleep. Meet Duck, Bear’s persistent next-door neighbor. All he wants is to hang out . . . with Bear.
Jory John, author of All My Friends Are Dead, and Benji Davies join together to create this standout hilarious picture book that will make bedtime memorable.
I can start it playing and switch to the book and follow along, which does help. The audio is expressive, and is a good addition, but it doesn’t Whispersync with the book so you have to start it in the Audible app, then open the book and allow it to play in the background.
My son loves to be read too, and this book we have been reading to him every night, he chooses the book and one of us will read it to him. This book he loves the frog when we showed him the picture all he did was laugh so hard and smile.
You can purchase the book on Amazon.
