Review quote

-This bedtime confection presents several arctic animals and raises the question: 'Do they dream like you do? Imagine it's true./Let's see what dream secrets they keep.' . . . suitable for large collections where there is a high demand for sweet bedtime tales. The calm repetitiveness of the slightly silly text and the subdued illustrations would surely help young ones fall asleep.- --School Library Journal (Sweet Dreams, Polar Bear)show more
