School Library Journal
PreS A boatload of animals gets ready for bed in this slightly expanded version of a board book, The Going to Bed Book (S. & S., 1982). Boynton's greeting card characters are comfortably familiar and whimsical but her style has become repetitious. Animal antics in preparation for bed include taking a bath, brushing teeth, exercising and listening to a song sung by two rabbits. The story is told in rhyme which, like the song (for which music is provided), is forced. Each page contains only a few words, and pictures and text size are large enough for story time use, but most libraries would do better with additional copies of Brown's Goodnight, Moon (Harper, 1947). Jeanette Larson, Mesquite Public Library, Tex.

    A Rare Jewel

    I received this book as a little girl and my mother played the song on the piano, which I learned to play on my recorder and clarinet when I got older. Now in my twenties, I find this story and song in the story are the ONLY things that get infants, toddlers, and children to sleep. If you find one, keep for your great great great GREAT grandchildren. This is the one book everyone should own :-)
