Goodnight Lab by Chris Ferrie
In the great green lab
There was a laser
And a lab notebook
And a picture of Einstein with a stern look
Life as a scientist can be strenuous. Find comfort in saying goodnight to everything that is strewn around your laboratory with this sweet parody of the beloved classic Goodnight Moon. While poking fun at the clutter and chaos of lab life, this book gives scientists of all ages the tools needed to say goodnight and rest before returning to the world of research in the morning!
Goodnight Lab is a delightful parody of the classic Goodnight Moon. This book will stimulate your little one’s brains while delighting them with new words and concepts.
The illustrations paid fitting tribute to the original, and I loved how the main character was a character of color, in particular, a young girl. My daughter was inspired after reading this, alongside her current favorite Ada Twist, Scientist, she is becoming increasingly more interested in science.
The color palette, sentence structure, and rhyme scheme were all very similar to the original. I would love to see another version that didn’t follow the original so closely.
