A stunning bilingual story by award winning author and illustrator Yuyi Morales.

A treasure for bedtime, or anytime. --School Library Journal

As the long day comes to an end, Mother Sky fills a tub with falling stars and calls, Bath time for Little Night!

Little Night answers from afar, Cant come. I am hiding and you have to find me, Mama. Find me now!

Where could Little Night be? Down a rabbit hole? In a blueberry field? Among the stripes of bees? Exquisitely painted and as gentle as Little Nights dress crocheted from clouds, this is a story to treasure.

With a bilingual text in both English and Spanish, Little Night Nochecita by Yuyi Morales is a sweet story every child can enjoy.

Award-winning author and illustrator Yuyi Morales is the author of Caldecott Honor and Pura Belpr (Illustrator) Medal-winning Viva Frida, stunning bilingual bedtime story Little Night/Nochecita, Rudas: Nios Horrendous Hermanitas, Pura Belpr Honor Book (Narrative) Just In Case: A Trickster Tale and Spanish Alphabet Book, and other picture books for young readers.

Children will delight in Little Nights dreamy world and will want to read about her unique, yet still familiar, nighttime ritual again and again. --Booklist, starred review

Full-bleed spreads with luminous and rich hues of evening sky-blues, reds, and pinks-are painted in flowing sweeps of color, which illuminate and animate the glorious text. They are juxtaposed with the dark earth tones of cherubic Little Night and Mother Sky, and the effect is dreamlike and peaceful. A treasure for bedtime, or anytime. --School Library Journal
