Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Debra Briatico
Reminiscent of Margaret Wise Brown's "Goodnight Moon," this colorful flip-around picture book celebrates the beginning and end of each day. The first half of this book uses lively, rhyming verse to greet the new day and the second half uses gentle, soothing verse to welcome the night. Infants and toddlers will be drawn to the bright paintings and repetitive language. 1998 (orig.
Kirkus Reviews
In another recycling of Zolotow's past works (see review, above), this new version of a 1971 title that was illustrated by Leonard Weisgard takes a circular approach. Paparone follows the awakening of young animals (in children's clothes) to a day of sunshine and play. A flip of the book (so it reads from back to front) prepares them and readers for sleep; "trees whisper/the birds are still" in a comfortably contemporary setting, where a dinosaur mobile hangs from the ceiling. The morning colors are citrus bright and energetic, while the night scenes appear in hushed shades of indigo. A pleasing edition: The book's rotations mimic those of day and night in a way that toddlers will comprehend. (Picture book. 1-6)
