From Barnes & NobleThere are plenty of versions of this classic rhyme, but Sylvia Long's watercolor depiction of this popular lullaby really hits the mark. Young animals gaze at the stars from the top of a hill. They retreat to their homes and into the arms of their parents. Skunk, Raven, and Mouse happily greet their family and get ready for bed. A dinner of fresh bugs awaits little Frog, and Raven gets his nightly bath. Skunk reads a story with his mom and dad, and Mouse is happily tucked in. The little ones lie abed, asleep and content.
Long follows the rhyme perfectly, using detailed illustrations for each couplet --from the gorgeous night sky to the brightly patterned pajamas of the young animals -- and captivates readers with her undeniable charm. This is a comforting read and a cozy companion for bedtime. Youngsters are sure to finish this book with heavy eyes, ready for sleep.
