So, this isn’t really a book review for adults, but rather a book review for children. We bought a book for Lylah, before she was even born, called “Goodnight New Hampshire”. It is written by Adam Gamble and Anna Rosen and published by Our World of Books. From what I understand, there is a whole series of “Goodnight” books. We chose “Goodnight New Hampshire” for obvious reasons.
The book has hard pages and has lots of colors, so it keeps our four-month-old’s attention pretty well. It starts off saying hello to many different objects and people throughout the Granite State, including white tailed deer, pink lady slippers and children hiking on the Presidential Range. The reader is able to visit a New Hampshire country store, the ski slopes and apple orchards. Finally, the book ends by saying goodnight to Mount Washington, the highest peak in New Hampshire. Maybe the best page of all is the end, where a father is tucking in his child for the night. A picture on the child’s wall is the Old Man of the Mountain himself.
So, I give this book two thumbs up and would highly recommend it to anyone with an infant at home that loves New Hampshire and wants to teach their children about all the great things in this wonderful State!
