Bonnie and Ben's favorite babysitter, Skinny Doug, has a treasure trove of nursery rhymes to share in this clever presentation that frames the rhymes in the context of a story about two young charges not eager for bedtime. "'We love it! We love it!' said Bonnie and Ben. 'How does it go? Will you say it again?'" This refrain is their response each time Skinny Doug recites a rhyme. But he always has a new one to share. "'... I'll tell you another I heard from my mother ... '" Inevitably, the game is eventually over. "Good night, Sleep tight!" The playful illustrations show Bonnie, Ben, and Skinny Doug as participants in each of the nursery rhyme scenarios in addition to reflecting the warmth of their relationship as they go through the ritual of bedtime. (Ages 3-6)
