Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Beyond a doubt, the author and the artist possess intimate knowledge of small children. Creating a lulling bedtime audiovisual diversion, Howard's story and Cherry's pictures are mutually enhancing, revealing a child's sleepy fantasies. She lies in bed and wishes she could curl up in a basket with a cat or in a downy nest with baby birds, sometimes hugged by a friendly raccoon in his hollow log. . . . The book should appeal to parents looking for ways to settle down active little boys and girls who will tune into the narrator's imagination and lose themselves in the lovely, full-color dream scenes. 14
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
A large format board book that shows a titian-hair girl imaging herself sleeping like a variety of animals. She pictures herself curled up in a basket like a cat, snuggling with a hibernating bear, or hanging upside down like a bat, but in the end she is happy to be snuggling under her own warm covers and putting her head on a soft pillow. Fanciful and amusing, a delightful bed time story.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1 In this quiet, gentle story, a little girl wonders what it would be like to sleep as various animals do. She imagines herself in a cozy nest with a bird, on a log with a turtle, in a bear's den, hanging from a tree with a bat. At the end, the little girl is in her own bed, dozing off with the stuffed sleeping animals on a shelf beside her. The full-page and double-page illustrations are painted in softened but rich colors with pen-and-ink detail. Each animal is seen in its habitat, often with other animals and plant life. The scenes are warm and comforting. The brief text has a lulling effect, with just a few well-chosen words per page. A nice addition to bedtime story collections.

    This is one of our very favorite bedtime stories. The illustrations are wonderful, and the text is soothing and lovely. This is a book that we will pass along to others and will be read and reread often.
