Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS-K
Poem after poem sings of "feeling dozy,/sleepy, cozy" as friendly-looking animal families prepare for bed. Freedman maintains the same gentle singsong pitch throughout this loose collection of "lullabies," which blend together into tedium. The only signal that a new selection has begun is the sometimes-abrupt change in illustration style, e.g., an earth-toned, smudged pastel of a momma bunny carrying her baby up the stairs is followed by a crisp, bright watercolor of two mice gazing at the moon. This volume lacks any sense of story, and it is too disjointed. Additionally, there is no musical notation. This attractively produced title will suffice for bedtime reading, but won't win any converts from the classics in the already heavily explored genre.

Kirkus Reviews
Though not entirely sappy, this inoffensive collection of bedtime rhymes doesn't exactly charm, either. A series of animal families-bunnies, bears, mice-go through the bedtime rituals of bath and story and goodnight hugs and kisses. The illustrations are by various artists, each listed in the credits on the verso, although they maintain some unity of image: soft colors, rounded shapes, gentle light, lots of stars. Some of the animal families wear clothes, and some do not, but all live in pretty homes, some of which are tucked into natural habitats like rabbit holes or burrows. A good indication of the tone: "In the glow of the lamplight, / We're tucked in so snug, / With our favorite toy, And a goodnight hug!" It will surely find its audience. (Picture book. 3-6)
