Item Description...
Even after Mrs. Bear reads him a story, tucks him in, and gives him a glass of warm milk, Sam is not ready to go to sleep until his mother kisses him good-night.

Publishers Description
Tuck someone in with a kiss good night.

"It was a dark and stormy night on Plum Street. In the little white house, Mrs. Bear was putting Sam to bed."
Outside, the wind blows and the rain comes down. Inside, it is Sam's bedtime. Mrs. Bear reads him a story, tucks him in, and brings him warm milk. "Are you ready now, Sam?" she asks. "I'm waiting," he says. What else does Sam need before going to sleep? Could Mrs. Bear have forgotten a kiss?
Amy Hest is the author of many books, including WHEN JESSIE CAME ACROSS THE SEA, winner of the Christopher Medal and illustrated by P. J. Lynch, and IN THE RAIN WITH BABY DUCK, winner of the BOSTON GLOBE - HORN BOOK Award and illustrated by Jill Barton. She says that she was inspired by her own son, Sam. "When Sam was small he knew countless ways to keep me in his room at bedtime," she remembers.

Anita Jeram is the illustrator of the best-selling GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU by Sam McBratney. She is also the author-illustrator of BUNNY, MY HONEY and ALL TOGETHER NOW. About KISS GOOD NIGHT, she says it reminds her of when "the children and I are comfortable and safe, tucked up snug in bed, listening to the rain outside the window and everything around seems to glow with the warmth."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Read It Again!  Jun 7, 2008
This is a wonderful book for preschool children. I bought it at a garage sale yesterday, and read it to my 2 year old grandson today for the first time. At the end of the story he simply said, "Again!". I read it a second time, and he said, "Again!". I passed the book to his mom who then read it a couple of times. The illustrations are beautiful, and he noticed all the little details, even the mouse running into the hole

The story is just so sweet for little ones. The way Mrs. Bear pretends to forget to kiss Sam good night is just so cute. I hope all little boys and girls have mommies as nice as Mrs. Bear. I highly recommend this book to parents and grandparents.
Good for baby and Mom  Feb 29, 2008
Because I liked this book so much (there's a plot, a tiny bit of suspense, actual sentences, an obvious place to sneak in real kisses, and inviting semi-detailed comforting pictures), I can not explain why my 9-month old also liked it whose tastes were quite dissimilar. Admittedly, although my sweet quicker-page-flipper forced a quick reading of certain pages sometimes, he was still quite content to hear the book to the end. As he gets older (now, 21 months), this is still his pick from the shelf, often.
Sweet Book with Great Illustrations  Jan 11, 2008
I am not much of a fan of books, but with two little ones in the house, my wife and I feel that it is important to read to them. This book tells of a sweet story of a mother bear putting her little youngster bear to bed. She goes through their normal routine buts forgets one thing - the one thing that the little bear is waiting for. She finally remembers.

It is just a sweet story for you to read to your little one and the illustrations are extremely well done.
Kiss Goodnight is my favorite book  Dec 31, 2007
Anyone who loves their children and loves reading should purchase this book. This book is so warm and loving that renting it from the library just won't due...we read it over and over and over again. A true classic.

Has been a staple at our home for the past 2years!  May 30, 2007
I got this for my daughter when she was a baby and she still loves it, at 2! The story is sweet and comforting, just what young kids love. Little Sam is put to bed by his mom, but he indicates there's something mom is forgetting ['I'm waiting']...and of course, it all ends well, with lots of hugs and kisses ['again!', 'again!']. The illustrations are beautiful with lush colors. A definite keeper!
