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.
