Overview

Two talented artists pair up in this loving story about bedtime on a farm.

Lily can't fall alseep. The farm is much too noisy and Lily is much too curious. "Hush now, Lily," says Mother Rabbit as the full moon rises over the farm. But Lily wants to hear the golden-eyed duck sing its duck lullaby and the cow tell its bedtime story. So Mother Rabbit and Lily embark on a sleepy,barnyard adventure and discover that each animal has a special way of preparing for bedtime. Mother Rabbit and Lily snuggle up in the shadowy stable. And as quiet falls over the farm, the last lullaby of the night is Lily's sweet, little snore.

When baby rabbit Lily cannot sleep, the farmyard animals try to help her.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
It may take a village to raise a child but, according to this inviting bedtime book, it takes a barnyard to coax a baby rabbit to sleep. At first, Lily thinks the farmyard sounds make it too hard to sleep, but she and her mother discover that the noisemakers are actually preparing to bed down themselves-and they're happy to lend Lily a hand. "Are we keeping you awake?" says a duck. "We were only singing sleepy bedtime songs to one another. Would you like me to sing a song to you, too?" A "soft-eyed" cow tells Lily a bedtime story and a hen collects extra straw for Lily's bed. Bendall-Brunello (I Love You This Much) ushers readers into this idyllic rural community with twilight washes of watercolor and light-as-a-feather pencil or crayon strokes. His chiffon textures and openhearted characterizations meld beautifully with the sweet snugness of Freedman's (Where's Your Smile, Crocodile?) lilting prose. In a particularly appealing interlude, the animals issue a chorus of hushabyes, which Bendall-Brunello incorporates into his pictures as zephyrs of text. " `Shhh,' hushed the ducks to the rippling reeds. `Shhh' hushed the cows to the leaves on the trees. `Shhh,' hushed the hens into the whispering wind." A humorous ending does not undercut the soothing, tranquil mood. Ages 2-6. (June) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
It is night time on the farm, but Lily can't get to sleep. The little bunny thinks the yard is too noisy. She hears ducks quacking in the pond, owls hooting, piglets squeaking, cows mooing, kittens meowing, donkeys braying, and hens clucking. Some of the animal mothers try to lull Lily to sleep with stories and songs, but just as she is at the brink of slumber, she is always awakened by a new noise. Finally, all of the animals join together in a comforting "shhh" that eases Lily into sleep as she snuggles against her mother. The funny twist at the end of the story is that her snoring wakes up the baby horse in the barn. This amusing story is perfect for bedtime. The flowing text is accompanied by pastel watercolor illustrations of the farm animals as they prepare for sleep. The gentle dialogue between the animals models politeness and introduces interesting vocabulary. Young readers will enjoy this story as they prolong their own curfews. 2002, Orchard Books, Lynch
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-This gentle tale of a bunny's sleepless night has lots of charm. While Lily's mother carefully explains the sources of the many barnyard sounds preventing the curious rabbit from sleeping, some of the animals causing the disturbances come forward to share their nighttime comforts, lullabies, and bedtime stories with the tired creature. While their offerings do little to soothe Lily, the hens' straw beds intrigue her. When she finally snuggles down on one of her own, the sleepy horses awake to a new sound in the barn-Lily snoring peacefully. The soft, warm watercolor-and-pencil illustrations match the tone of this comforting tale. While this book is a grand storytime choice, it will also be terrific for one-on-one sharing.-Andrea Tarr, Corona Public Library, CA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A noisy farmyard is keeping Lily awake, but Mother Rabbit solves the problem by taking her on a tour of the grounds, allowing her to see for herself how all of the animals are preparing for bed. A visit to the pond earns Lily a lullaby from a goose. A cow offers her a bedtime story, making Lily yawn in response. A generous hen fashions a comfortable bed for Lily out of straw. As the owl hoots, the pigs squeak, and the dreaming donkey softly brays, Lily is coaxed towards sleep by the gentle sounds on the settling farm. A sleepy foal pricks up his ears at a sound in the night, but his mother comforts him, telling him, "It's only little Lily snoring!" Muted illustrations, alternating between full-bleed paintings and small vignettes, mimic the quiet tale of one small bunny's struggle against sleep. A bedtime treat for the ears. (Picture book. 2-5)
