Cute book!! Daddy goes to work at night and Harry and the rest of the family spend the evening getting ready for bed ( )

This is a charmingly written and beautifully illustrated book that shows a loving family's evening/night/morning routines while the daddy is a train conductor who works at night. The experiences of the family are shared in smooth, relaxing words that would be perfect for a bedtime story. The watercolor illustrations are perfectly suited to the delightful story, which can be enjoyed by adults and children alike. ( )

Good Morning Harry, Goodnight Daddy is an enjoyable story that simultaneously follows Harry's Dad as he heads off to his night job and Harry and the rest of his family as they prepare for bedtime. It is a great book to show children the concept of shift work and may help to explain why a parent isn't always home at night. The nightly routines of both both Harry's dad and Harry evoke a feeling of familiarity and comfort. The soft watercolor illustrations are beautifully done and quite detailed and the writing has a lyrical feel to it. I think my grandson will enjoy reading this book with his grandma! ( )

Written by Katy Beebe, "Good Morning, Harry - Good Night, Daddy" presents a sweet, simple story about a family that goes through it's daily and nightly routines. The one difference is the father works the graveyard shift and with a daughter who works these crazy hours, too, this book shares that lifestyle. The story had a melodic cadence that gives the story flow. I think that some children will find the book a bit confusing as some scenes are of the father at work on a train while other pages find the family at home with their routines. With conversation about how the book moves along, this story will engage young children with some familiar activities such as playing Go FISH.

The illustrations in this book are very strong. Valeri Gorbachev is a seasoned artist and his use of watercolor and ink is superb. Real-life scenes are engaging and the diverse use of color draw the reader in with each scene. Some are full spread pages and at other times a circular painting provides a view.

The story is worthy of reading though I believe the illustrations are what will bring children back time and time again. ( )
