Good Night, Sleep Tight by Mem FoxIn this story book, a babysitter named Skinny Doug tells Bonnie and Ben nursery rhymes for bedtime. After each rhyme, the children say they love it and ask it to be said again. Some other time, said Skinny Doug. But Ill talk tell you another I heard from my mother. Finally, after several nursery rhymes, he tells the children it is way past their bedtime. He kisses each child on the head and tells them Good night. Sleep tight!
The illustrations light the imagination for each rhyme. They delight readers as they watch Bonnie and Ben try to stay up past their bedtime to hear just one more rhyme. The text is rhythmic. The rhyming refrain prepares readers and listeners for the next nursery rhyme. A good book for preschool and up.

This 19th century expression isn't, as is often wrongly claimed, a reference to the tightness of the strings used to support mattresses. The word was probably chosen because of its rhyme with night, so people wished other 'good night, sleep tight'. It's common at bedtime in the form of the rhyme "good night, sleep tight, don't let the bedbugs bite". There are many meanings of the word 'tight' and it's no surprise that there are several theories going the rounds as to the origin of 'sleep tight'. One is that the phrase dates from the days when mattresses were supported by ropes which needed to be pulled tight to provide a well-sprung bed.
