About the Book
All aboard this alliterative alphabetical adventure before bedtime.
This dream-like "Good Night" journey takes the reader on a tour to meet Lake Tahoe’s native and common baby animals while they are enjoying recreational activities in some of the most remarkable places that make the lake region so magical.
Beddy-bye bear is boating; the coyote is camping in Carson City; the raccoon is rafting in Reno; the trout is tubing in Truckee; and
many more surprises.
It is a book that reminds us of the incomparable beauty of Lake Tahoe. The places we have been, and want to visit. The animals that we have seen, and hope to see. And, the winter and summer activities that we have done, and dream of doing.

The goal of Good Night Tahoe is to raise awareness for protecting the environment, particularly the Lake Tahoe Basin and its flora and fauna.
