Though their homes may differ, children around the world share cozy bedtime rituals.

It is bedtime here in my home on the sea.
We’re snug in our bunks, my brother and me.
I’m thinking of you, wherever you are.
If we look up, will we see the same star?

Cozy, intricate spreads set the scene to fall asleep — in a yurt, under the stars, high up in an apartment or rocking on a boat. Goodnight, World is a natural progression for young kids beginning to explore connections and develop the awareness that they are citizens of the world.
