" This science parody is brightly colored and will catch the eye of of young readers. It introduces good vocabulary found in a science setting and will let them know Albert Einstein was a historic figure who used scientific tools. Even 10 year olds and better will appreciate not being overwhelmed with too many faces. Part of a series for young readers interested in science. It's even a good gift for older children and adults who appreciate humor and learning. " said.

" A good parody of Goodnight moon. A scientist says goodnight to their lab and their grumpy professor yelling “PUBLISH”. I think the publish concept maybe hard for little ones to understand, but I love introducing kids to science young. " said.

" Lol, this was awesome. I loved Goodnight Moon when I was a kid, but this one is just as great. My nine year old is really into science and he liked this read. I was hoping for a little more in the art department, but that's okay. I'll live. Four stars for Goodnight Lab. Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review. " said.

"Ferrie, Chris Goodnight Lab: A Scientific Parody. PICTURE BOOK. Sourcebooks Jabberwocky, JULY 2017. $18.

Meet and say goodnight to each of the people and items in the scientist’s lab. Whether you like the classic picture book or not, the scientist in you will enjoy saying hello and good night to each item. A great gift for a scientist of any age. Give it as a baby gift and you can inspire little scientists from the cradle. This would be killer as a board book.

"Chris Ferrie, author of the Baby University series, now takes on a classic. Goodnight Moon gets an update with a scientific twist. A young female scientist is in the lab surrounded by items like a thermometer, a laser, and a portrait of Einstein. Slowly, more items are named and then as we reach the halfway point of the book, we begin to tell all the objects "goodnight." Like the original, the setting has green walls and a red floor, but there are no bears or chairs, n mittens or kittens. Instead of a lady whispering "hush," we have a grumpy old professor shouting "publish." The book follows the pattern of Goodnight Moon in its wording. It also limits the objects to what would be found in a lab, just as the original included objects from a child's bedroom or nursery. That is why we see things like tanks of liquid nitrogen or lab coats in the illustrations.

With the current awareness of the need for more diverse characters in books, having a young African American female as the protagonist is a welcome sight. From the perspective of STEM teachers, it is also great to see someone from such underrepresented groups happily working in a science lab. No attention is drawn to the gender or racial/ethnic background of the character, but the visual representation in that setting speaks loud and clear to those of us looking for such things.

I read an e-book provided by the publisher through edelweiss.

"Does this book look kind of familiar? Well if you are acquainted with "Goodnight Moon" (one of the best sellers of all time), then this book will bring back fond memories. It is a wonderful salute to those happy moments spent reading that book over and over and over again.

This is a delightful parody is written to stimulate brains, introduce kids to new words and concepts, and to give an insight into how a scientist conducts her life every single day. I love the fact that the scientist was a girl. Very good indeed.

Kids get to witness a scientific lab with its many components and then say goodnight to the people and items that are found within. A fun exercise would be to copycat the goodnight ritual by saying goodnight to the things around your child's room before its lights out.

Both kids and adults will appreciate that everyone (and thing) has an end to their day and it's wonderful to wrap everything up and say good night because tomorrow will be here before you know it with all its busyness and possibilities.

" "Goodnight to the grumpy old professor shouting "publish'"..." Love it! " said.

" Cute parody of Goodnight Moon for the science nerd in us all. Love the fact that it doesn't shy away from big words and that it features a dark-skinned female scientist on the cover! And while I understand keeping along with the original's (grammatically incorrect) lack of commas throughout the whole book (especially the title!), I feel like a scientist would care about those details more and correct them.
