Udry's words paint a lovely picture of a sleepy ending to a warm summer's day. My two-year-old has loved this story from the first words I read to her. It's a lovely book to read aloud, and Sendak's illustrations are beautifully appropriate for each page. Not a lot of plot, but lovely imagery for anyone who has played outside on a warm summer night and had fun pretending with siblings. Makes parents reminisce for simpler times and makes children wonder about life before Nintendo.
