Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Do you know a child who has nightmares? This book may not solve the problem, but it should be able to help them concentrate enough to go to sleep peacefully. This picture book is about a little girl who lives a beautiful dream. When she closes her eyes and concentrates enough, then her sleep pony, "Whinny" comes to carry her away on a sweet adventure with several other horses. The beautiful pastel watercolor drawings (painted by the author) add to the serenity of this story. This book would be especially helpful for a child who was having problems going to sleep, because part of the story is that the girl can only see the ponies when she is perfectly still with her eyes closed. Whenever she opens here eyes, the ponies disappear. The peaceful book is well written, and would make a great bedtime story for any young child. 2000, MindCastle Books,

    An outstanding and sweet bedtime story book

    What a delight this book is! The little girl in the story is told that if she closes her eyes she will be able to call up her sleep pony, who will carry her off to a pleasant place in her dreams. The art work is beautifully understated and portrays the little girl and Whinny, her pony in pastel colored watercolors. The story is good, the artwork is outstanding and her ponies reminded Sharon my wife and fellow book reviewer of her Texas childhood. I would recommend this book for any child, but particularly those children with night fears and troubled sleep. There are no nightmares in this book, only friendly sleep ponies.

    Imagination and comfort

    This book has just the right combination of imaginaton and comfort along with excitement. It is not the kind of excitement that causes bad dreams. It is a great book for a bedtime story.

    Sleep Ponies

    I loved the part when the little girl got to ride on the sleep pony in the meadow when the sun was shining and they got to go fast.

    Sleep Ponies

    This is a very gentle and lovely book. The illustrations are so beautiful and colorful and 'dreamlike.' It's a perfect bedtime story for guaranteed sweet dreams. I wish I could jump in the book and ride my own sleep pony!

    Sleep Ponies

    The best part was when the sleep ponies carefully took the little girl back to her bed and she never woke up!
