When Little Bunny can't sleep because "there's too much dark at night," it's up to Papa to find just the right night-light for his little bunny. The pair go for a walk around the woods and Papa points out the possibilities. Perhaps the moon is the ideal night-light? Or maybe the fireflies will be able to help? Or even the little glowworm? Featuring luminescent nighttime illustrations that glow in the dark, and a comforting text, this bedtime story will resonate with little bunnies and their parents.

Booklist Review: "There's too much dark at night, claims Bunny to Papa one evening, so together they search their woodland community for the perfect illumination. The moon is too bright, fireflies too twinkly, and a streetlight too tall, but upon returning home, Mama suggests her old night-light (it's called little but it's almost as big as Bunny), which fills the need perfectly. While the artistic style is similar to Hayes' Geisel Medal-winning graphic novel Benny and Penny in the Big No-No! (2009), this is a more traditional format with gently drawn and colored bucolic scenes surrounded by nocturnal creatures scurrying around wide margins. Bunny is textually gender-neutral but depicted visually in traditionally girl-centric flowery pajamas, and Hayes seems likewise vague regarding how often he intends to rhyme, yet the story's soothing structure, the bunny's recognizable hesitation to sleep, the comforting conclusion, and the appealing, if somewhat gimmicky, glow-in-the-dark spots on each page (if it's light enough to read, it's too bright to see them) are all just right to help any youngster sleep tight.--Medlar, Andrew Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Hayes's (the Benny and Penny books) sweet bedtime book has gentle, repetitive prose that tells the story of Bunny and her Papa, who go searching for a nightlight. Bunny objects to all the lights they find (the moon is "too bright," the stars "too twinkly," the fireflies "too busy") until Mama presents Bunny with the perfect nightlight, which casts comforting shadows on the wall. The book's lilting rhythms end with a poem that ties into the book's underlying, reassuring message that while nighttime may seem dark, "[T]here's always a light somewhere." Just right for the subject matter, Hayes's cartoons are, as usual, friendly and warm, including cozy village scenes surrounded by a gray-blue border filled with images of clouds, bedtime reading, and the night sky. Throughout the book, various light sources-those mentioned in the story and others-are treated with a glow-in-the-dark coating. While the gimmick is likely to please young readers, having to repeatedly turn the lights on and off (in order to appreciate the phosphorescent effect) may make for some slow-glowing bedtime reading.
