Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
From Eleanor Farjeon's "Waking up" to Sara Teasdale's "Night," 30 inspiring poems chart the day in Hello Sunshine, Good Night Moonlight: Favorite Poems to Take You Through the Day, illus. by John Wallace. Featured poets include Bobbi Katz, Robert Louis Stevenson and Molly Bang, among many others, and offer thematic impetus for Wallace's pastel-toned illustrations, teeming with cheery toddlers and animals exploring the world and at play. (Mar.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-In this collection, 30 poems are arranged to reflect the cycle of a day, from waking in the morning, spending time at school, and playing afternoon games to sharing nighttime rituals. Robert Louis Stevenson's "The Swing" shares pages with newer verse, such as Coral Rumble's "Toothpaste Trouble." Molly Bang's "Ten, Nine, Eight" is included, as is Emily Dickinson's "A Word." The selections are thoughtfully arranged and humorous topics are followed by more contemplative themes. Anonymous limericks come together with ancient haiku and Gaelic lullabies, and poems focus on such day-to-day topics as grandmothers brushing their granddaughters' hair, the first day of school, jumping on the bed, and the glory of a new day. A glossary of British terms is included. Wallace's charming watercolors accompany each poem. Boys and girls of different ethnicities are represented in the illustrations and humorous touches add whimsy and delight. Display this book with Lee Bennett Hopkins's The Sky Is Full of Song (HarperCollins, 1983; o.p.) and introduce it to parents who want to share poetry with their young children.-Shawn Brommer, South Central Library System, Madison, WI Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Among the raft of Noah's Ark retellings flooding the Bible story shelves, this interpretation stands out by focusing on a smaller part of the tale. The cumulative story looks at just a few of the animal pairs and three of the humans that might have been aboard the Ark: Noah, his wife, and his young grandson, called Eber. The noises of the great storm in turn frighten four pairs of animals and then the little boy, who takes refuge in his grandparents' big bed (which is actually a rowboat). In humorous fashion the grandparents discover that the crowded and noisy conditions in their bed aren't really due to their grandson, but to the animals that are hiding in fear under the quilt. The author skillfully uses elements of suspense and humor along with rich, evocative language in her simple but satisfying story, complemented by the amusing watercolor illustrations. Grandpa Noah might not know who is in his bed, but there are plenty of clues for children to discover (starting with the animals' silhouettes on the cover), so that youngsters will be able to predict the humorous conclusion. As a riff on the Noah's Ark story, this succeeds swimmingly. (Picture book. 3-6)
