Product Description:

PreSchool-K—Beyond the soothing titular refrain repeated throughout, troubles cripple this ode to bedtime ritual. Without strict stylistic technique, the verse is unnecessarily redundant, and cumbersome phrases such as "And as you dream inside your sleep" will trip up readers. Adults will surely have to explain the lines "Your dreams will be arriving soon./They'll float to you/in sleep's balloon." The book's design clearly favours Tillman's richly hued digital and mixed-media composite paintings over the text. Though fans of Tillman's On the Night You Were Born (Feiwel & Friends, 2006) will likely gravitate to this title, general readers will do better to look to other books for their evening routine.—Bethany Isaacson, Wheaton Regional Library, Silver Spring, MD

Another gorgeous book by this fantastic author. I purchased most of her books for my new granddaughter. They are all a delight. I can thoroughly recommend them. Illustrations are superb, as is the text.
