<DIV><B>National bestseller</B><BR /><B>2017 National Book Critics Circle (NBCC) Finalist<BR /> ABA Indies Introduce Winter / Spring 2017 Selection<BR /> Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Spring 2017 Selection<BR /> ALA 2018 Notable Books Selection<BR /><BR /> An intimate and poignant graphic novel portraying one family’s journey from war-torn Vietnam, from debut author Thi Bui</B>.<BR />  <BR /> This beautifully illustrated and emotional story is an evocative memoir about the search for a better future and a longing for the past. Exploring the anguish of immigration and the lasting effects that displacement has on a child and her family, Bui documents the story of her family’s daring escape after the fall of South Vietnam in the 1970s, and the difficulties they faced building new lives for themselves.<BR />  <BR /> At the heart of Bui’s story is a universal struggle: While adjusting to life as a first-time mother, she ultimately discovers what it means to be a parent—the endless sacrifices, the unnoticed gestures, and the depths of unspoken love. Despite how impossible it seems to take on the simultaneous roles of both parent and child, Bui pushes through. With haunting, poetic writing and breathtaking art, she examines the strength of family, the importance of identity, and the meaning of home.<BR />  <BR /> In what Pulitzer Prize–winning novelist Viet Thanh Nguyen calls “a book to break your heart and heal it,” <I>The Best We Could Do</I> brings to life Thi Bui’s journey of understanding, and provides inspiration to all of those who search for a better future while longing for a simpler past.</DIV>

Does your child refuse to sleep even if it is so late? Read this hot nursery rhymes bestseller and find out how Swampy gets ready for bed!</b><br /><br /><i>Goodnight, Swampy the Little Monster</i> is a bedtime story about a cute little monster named Swampy. He loves to watch TV and loves to hide. That has proved to be quite a problem for Monster Mommy as she struggles to put Swampy to bed every night. After TV time is over and Monster Mommy gets ready to put Swampy to bed, Swampy disappears without a trace! The worst part? Monster Mommy has to go through this ordeal every day!<br /><br />But not all hope is lost as big brother Monty is here to help. Monty has no problems going to bed on time and is willing to lead by example and make Swampy appreciate the joy of bedtime. It won’t be easy though as Swampy can be a cranky little monster throwing toys and making noise.<br /><br />Fortunately, Monty is smart and determined to impress Mommy Monster as he started to take a bath and convincing a giggling Swampy to do so as well. Swampy sure had fun with his bath and as Mommy helped him dry, Swampy tried to escape but ended up on Mommy Monster’s lap all comfy and cozy. Even Daddy Monster joined in on the bedtime fun preparing Swampy’s pajamas.<br /><br /><p><i>“She scrubbed his big paws and then his ears</i><br /><i>While Swampy the little monster made big cheers...“</i></p><br />It isn’t bedtime just yet for Swampy as Monster Mommy needs to help him brush his teeth. And to Mommy’s surprise, Swampy had fun doing it and whitening his teeth. All it took for Mommy was to give Swampy a nice little bedtime story and off Swampy went to sleep feeling super refreshed the next morning.<br /><br /><i>Goodnight, Swampy the Little Monster</i> teaches important bedtime habits to restless kids and children ages 3-5 who just want to stay up all night. Planning the bedtime routine for your child can have its fair share of difficulties but this sleep book teaches the value of making the ordeal fun. Monster bedtime book stories are highly effective in calming the most energetic kids and you’d be surprised to see how kids relate with Swampy and just fall asleep shortly after.<br /><br />With funny catchy words and nursery rhyme verses to keep children hooked, <i>Goodnight, Swampy the Little Monster</i> belongs in every nighttime book library.

Keegan from Swampy’s distinctive orange spots all the way down to the bugs on Swampy’s favorite pajamas.<br /><br />And even if it isn’t bedtime yet, your child can still have fun with Swampy through the included coloring book.
