Publishers Weekly, June 3, 2013:
"Lobel’s Nini Lost and Found gouache and watercolor art adds to the story’s offbeat humor; the sheep’s vivid disguises include cat masks, tutus, sailor outfits, and more. An inventive and slightly raucous bedtime tale."
Booklist, August 1, 2013:
"There’s something beguilingly childlike about this simple story, in which the girl takes charge, reassuring her “silly sheep” that the moon won’t eat them, and when that doesn’t work, managing their fears in a playful way. The gouache-and-watercolor illustrations create cozy, yet lively scenes that are full of color, pattern, and movement. A quiet, imaginative tale that is just right for reading aloud at bedtime."
The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, October 2013:
"The gentle plot and quiet cadence of the text make this bedtime book a effective soporific that may actually induce slumber in its young audience...The gouache and watercolor art is cozy and attractive, with a folk-art solidity, and Lobel’s slightly smudgy layering and blending of colors gives depth and richness to the pictures...Besides bedtime reading, this might also lend itself as a closing title for an evening library storytime session."
Kirkus Reviews, June 15, 2013:
"A lovely 'Going-to-Bed Book' indeed."
