The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based list of titles available only on-line. Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to offer--so don't expect an even dozen. Please feel free to copy, download, or link to these lists. We ask only that you cite the source. See the archive for lists from previous months.

Bedtime Books
selected by Elizabeth Bush

Sometimes children need a little nudge toward the Land of Nod--something to calm the senses, plant the seed of a sweet dream, or arm the psyche against things that "go bump in the night." Here are some bedtime gems culled from our last few issue years, as well as a few old reliables too good to pass by. It is with the highest praise that we say, "These books will put kids to sleep."

So where are Brown's Goodnight Moon and Sendak's In the Night Kitchen? Hey, some things go without saying.
