Editorial Reviews

ALA Booklist
“Warm and reassuring.”
Publishers Weekly
It's bedtime in the forest and all the animal parents are putting their offspring to bed. "Little birdies, cheep, cheep, cheep./ No more songs now, sleep, sleep, sleep!" says a father cardinal. A few pages later, a big bear tells his two cubs to "Stop that growling and behave,/ Little bears in your dark cave." But if youngsters think they're getting off scot-free, they're in for a surprise. On the penultimate spread, the animals squarely address readers: "What about/ you,/ sleepyhead?/ .../ No more songs now, not one peep./ Close your eyes and go to sleep!" (On the following page, a child sleeps, surrounded by stuffed animals.) Fans of Chapman's exuberant Bear Snores On and its sequels (with Karma Wilson) may find the text here less compelling, but there's no denying the soothing predictability of the rhymes. Chapman's saturated palette and textured brushwork make the forest seem not only lush but also radiant with a moonlit glow. The animals exude both a subtle grace and cheeky spirit. Ages 3-7. (Feb.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-As darkness falls, animal parents gather their young for bed. Little bunnies are stopped mid-hop, cheeping baby birds are shushed, and squirrels suspend their activities and curl up in their tree. Only the owl awakens his sleepy offspring. Two wordless spreads show the animal families tucked into their respective nests, caves, and homes. Near the end, the parents gather to address readers directly: "What about You, sleepyhead?" The following page shows a young boy sleeping, surrounded by an array of stuffed toys. Chapman's winsome creatures painted in rich jewel tones add to the charm of this gentle bedtime book. The deep purples of the endpapers set the tone for evening time, and the hues darken from the beginning to the end of the story, as night progresses. A sweet rhyming story.-Robin L. Gibson, Granville Parent Cooperative Preschool, OH Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Forest animal moms tell their little ones that it's time to say goodnight in this rhyming bedtime treat. "Tiny mouse, the day is done. / Stop your scurrying, little one. / No more squeaking, not one peep. / Close your eyes now, go to sleep!" From the smallest bunny, bird and squirrel, to the largest deer and bear, the animals must stop what they are doing and settle in for the night-except for the owl, that is. Two beautiful double-page spreads wordlessly depict parents and children snuggling in, whether it's to a nest, den or burrow. But in a somewhat jarring finale, the animals leave their cozy beds to address the reader directly with a pointed reminder that it's time for sleep. Chapman's illustrations are filled with muted colors and soft shapes, helping to set the stage for bedtime. Her sweetly expressive forest animals will be a surefire winner with children and parents alike. The progression of both text and pictures from busy activity to settling down will give youngsters an example to follow. (Picture book. 2-6)

    A Beautiful Book

    This is a beautiful book. The illustrations are colorful and capture a toddler's attention and imagination. In fact, the pictures are so expressive that some of the pages have no words, just pictures of the animals going to sleep. The story is in rhyme and tells many different animals that it is time for bed. It also mentions that the owls are getting up at night instead of going to sleep. The best part is the twist at the end where you find out that all of the animals who went to bed earlier in the story are actually the stuffed animals of the little boy who goes to sleep at the end of the book. My two year old granddaughter had us read this book to her every night and she takes the book to bed with her.
