About the Author

Ruth Krauss was one of the most widely celebrated children's book authors of all time. Her long list of award-winning books includes The Carrot Seed, The Happy Day, A Hole Is to Dig, Open House for Butterflies, A Very Special House, and many others. Her books continue to be read and cherished by children throughout the world. Jane Dyer is the illustrator of the New York Times bestselling Cookies series by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, as well as numerous other award-winning picture books. She lives and works in Northampton, Massachusetts.


Jane Dyer brings her tender touch to a bedtime book by Ruth Krauss in Goodnight Goodnight Sleepyhead, which pairs text from Krauss's 1964 Eyes Nose Fingers Toes with Dyer's characteristically affectionate watercolors of a toddler and ever-patient mother. A "Baby Sleeping" door hanger is included. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

PreS-Dyer illustrates a text that was originally published as Eyes Nose Fingers Toes (Harper & Row, 1964; o.p.). Gentle rhymes tell the story of a toddler saying good night to her surroundings, her stuffed animals, and her mother. She snuggles her lamb, touches noses with her bear, and compares toes with her dinosaur. The simple spreads on which the baby bids good night to her toys are awash with soothing pastel watercolor backgrounds. While the stuffed animals are endearing, the child and her mother are not as appealing; they have old-fashioned, doll-like, and expressionless round faces delineated by a few simple lines and tiny rosebud mouths. The few pages where there is more color, detail, pattern, and activity work the best.-Shelley B. Sutherland, Niles Public Library District, IL Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

"Krauss's classic tale has a structure that's very similar to Goodnight Moon. As a child says goodnight to familiar objects, the story's repetition, rhythm, and rhyme lull little readers to sleep."--Brightly
