Review quote

"This is a treasury to be dipped into as needed, and therefore it's suitable for a wide range of listeners...."--The Bulletin "Nonsense poems, wordplay, nature, whimsy, and tenderness all mix together here in a collection that families with children from preschool through primary grades and beyond will enjoy reading together before bed."--Horn Book * "Exuberant for the most part (with some serious musings to lend ballast) and in perfect harmony with its cartoonish, color-washed illustrations, this sleepy-time volume is just the thing for the rhyme-loving child who has graduated from Mother Goose."--School Library Journal, starred review * "With a broad range of voices and sentiments, the collection delivers poems to meet any mood."--Publishers Weekly, starred review * "These pithy poetic observations and Niemann's engaging illustrations prove at once antidote and anodyne for the sleep-averse child demanding just one more....A dreamy collection of bedtime poems and witty illustrations that's anything but sleepy."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
