About the Book
Title: Goodnight, Sleep Tight: What a Wonderful Flight | Author: Louise Lintvelt | Illustrator: Do Thai Thanh | Publication Date: April 16, 2014 | Publisher: eBookPartnership.com | Number of pages: 30 | Recommended age: 3 to 8
After an exciting flight, it is time to say goodnight.
The tired sun sets overhead.
Sleepy aircraft get ready for bed.
They slow their propellers and park their wings.
Time to snuggle up and tuck in…Goodnight, Sleep Tight.
The charming illustrations and sweet rhyming text are sure to be a delight for sleepy aircraft enthusiasts.
Goodnight Sleep Tight: What a Wonderful Flight introduces five different planes. For each plane there is a day page and a night page. The day page tells a little bit about what that planes duties are during the day and the night page puts the plane to bed.
I really enjoy reading this book to the boys. It’s such a fun and easy read and it makes a great bedtime story. I especially love it because it is a rhyming picture book. Rhymes are so much fun to read and not only do I get to rhyme but I also get to do plane sounds. I would recommend this book to anyone that loves planes and also to anyone in need of a fun bedtime story.
I like the whole book. I like the plane that rescues.
JT loves this book and has me read it every night. His favorite plane is Air Ambulance Andrew. He always loves to point out when it changes from day to night. He also likes that Fire Plane Jake sleeps with a teddy bear. He also seems to be really interested in Crop Duster Dan as well because he always wants to know what exactly he is spraying and why. He said that his favorite pictures are Air Ambulance Andrew’s rescue and the cover, which features Air Ambulance Andrew.
I like the book. My favorite character is Fire Plane Jake. The pictures are cool, my favorite is of Fire Plane Jake pouring the water on the fire. I really like the way the fire looks.
JT usually just wants me to read this to him but when JT will let him Connor loves to read this to his little brother.
About the Author: Louise Lintvelt
I am from South Africa and I live in a city called Pretoria. I am a Chemical Engineer by day and a children’s book writer by night. I am married to a wonderful man and we have a beautiful two year old daughter called Allegra. I love writing stories for my daughter, who is a constant inspiration.
I have always loved reading. My childhood was filled with books and you would often find me crouched the corner of my room devouring the pages of my favourite book. I lived for Tuesday mornings as this would bring with it the excitement of a trip to the local library for story hour and the opportunity to take home a new book. I was the local librarian’s worst nightmare. I would arrive a few minutes early to check that she had not mistakenly chosen a book that had already been read in story hour.
I was a very bossy three year old with an insatiable appetite for books! This has not really changed much in the last twenty seven years. Dr. Seuss was my absolute favourite and to say that my copy of One, Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish Blue Fish was well read would be an understatement.
When it comes to writing, my daughter is my biggest inspiration. I love seeing her face light up with excitement when we sit down to read a book before bedtime. My daughter was fascinated by giraffes after we went on a safari trip in late 2012. This planted the seed for my picture book called How Andrew Got His Spots which is a rhyming adaptation of a story I originally wrote in the third grade. My daughter has since grown into a healthy two year old with a passion for aircraft which was the inspiration for writing Goodnight, Sleep tight, What a Wonderful Flight.
I am sure that there are many parents in the world (myself included), who are quite decidedly sick and tired of reading the same favourite picture book night after night. I believe that the words of Oscar Wilde best describe how children should feel about picture books when he said, If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.
