When we met Jade during a pop-up event last year, she shared that her daughter, Marion, had inspired her to create Goodnight Marion. She went on about how the book takes readers through switching off the lights in different parts of the house, saying goodnight to the animals in the living room, garden, kitchen.
Simple yet poignant, young readers are taken through a gentle and charming bedtime routine. Such a timely reminder for us, we thought. We all love a good book, one that connects because we relate with it.
With each turn of the page of Goodnight Marion is a question prompt that encourages conversations, setting up a safe space to talk about the day and validate feelings. You will also find Marion’s illustrations and keen eyes will find the mother and daughter pair pop up somewhere in the book.
Tonight, pick a book and snuggle up with your children.
Goodnight, Marion ❤️
Good Night Marion book is dedicated to parents, grandparents and caregivers who struggle to put children to bed.
Although this can be read as a bedtime story, there are also many conversations that can take place around each page as the story develops. Both caregivers and children are encouraged to discuss these themes like hope and fear, openly.
Let this be a safe space for you and the child to set an intention for an honest conversation. Have fun learning about yourselves and each other!
