books to soothe the active toddler?

SteelyKid having moved to a twin bed, we're looking to establish some more elaborate bedtime routines, hopefully ones that will signal her to stop bouncing off the walls much sooner than she often does. So what are your favorite soothing bedtime books, besides Goodnight Moon? Note she does not have a very long attention span yet, and in fact Goodnight Moon is about as long as she'll sit for being read to.
