“Haunting and beautiful.”
KIRKUS REVIEWS
Ben Gundersheimer’s roots run deep. As a first generation American, Lilah Tov Good Night conjures the magic of his childhood while paying homage to his storied family history. His father was born in Frankfurt and made a harrowing escape from Nazi Germany as a young child.

Based on an original lullaby, the book depicts the journey of a young girl as she leaves home with her family in search of a better life in a new land. Illustrated by Israeli artist, Noar Lee Haggon, this story celebrates the beauty of our natural world and the spirit of resilience in a refugee family.

Listen to the song that inspired the book:

Praise for Lilah Tov Good Night

As the sun sets and the moon rises, an unnamed young child says good night to everything in the natural landscape. . . . Simple, brief, descriptive text. . . . Lush, detailed, soft-edged landscapes provide another, deeper, and more nuanced level to the proceedings. . . . The protagonist is saying good night to the creatures and places spotted on what readers will see as a lengthy journey. . . . At the end of their travels there is a new home awaiting them. They travel quietly and surreptitiously. . . . Each young reader will interpret the work differently depending on individual understanding and knowledge of history, or perhaps with a wise adult to help. Haunting and beautiful.”
