Roaring Brook Press


In this soothing, gentle rhyming picture book, author Jennifer Adams bids sweet dreams to the youngest readers who identify as ballerinas by day and tender, sleepy children by night. With luminous art from illustrator Alea Marley, Goodnight, Little Dancer is sure to send little ones to sleep with twirling, dancing dreams.

It's time for bed now, little dancer.
Time to tell the world goodnight.
Let down your bun, shake out your hair.
Breathe in, relax, and dim the light.

Praise for Goodnight, Little Dancer

“This simple text moves swiftly, with one or two lines per spread, making a short, sweet goodnight story ideal for weary adults to help dance-obsessed young children settle into bed at the end of a long day.” –Kirkus Reviews -
