Fox and Rabbit live quite far away, in a bright little house beyond the mole hills. When they wish each other a good night, the rustling pear tree, the raspberries, and the stars join in. If they can’t sleep, they count the good nights (335 in total). Or they try sleeping somewhere else in the trees or in a tent. Sometimes they swing on the lamp shades.
Around the world each night, parents tell stories to children as they put them to bed. Margaret Read MacDonald a folklorist, storyteller, and children’s librarian uses bedtime tales in the daytime to end her story hours on a calm note.
