Product Details


With soothing repetition and alliteration, most poems make excellent read-alouds. . . Readers will linger over the lively details. . . With an enticing mix of playful whimsy and quiet moments, this well-crafted collection of accessible verse and lovely illustrations should appeal to a wide audience.
—School Library Journal

Across descriptions of nighttime routines, warm blankets, and starry skies, Taylor employs various verse types to usher readers to sleep. . . . The whole package soothingly and successfully points the way to zzz’s.
—Publishers Weekly

The transition from wakefulness to dreamland is lyrically explored in this accessible poetry collection. . . . Allepuz’s softly focused mixed-media illustrations glow with warmth. Expansive scenes filled with whimsical details (a pajama-clad child napping on a cloud; a flute-playing mouse) lend a magical atmosphere. A dreamy bedtime-poetry collection well suited for reading aloud.

British poet Taylor sends little ones to bed with thirty imaginative poems in three thematic sets. . . With a mix of rhyming and free-verse poetry, along with frequent, satisfying repetition, Taylor offers selections to read aloud and read together. . . Most young listeners will likely choose favorites to hear repeatedly.
—The Horn Book

Taylor makes effective use of rhyme, rhythm, and repetition to weigh down young eyelids.
—Kirkus Reviews

This oversized, thick book from a British team, with lots of illustrations that match the mood of each poem, is a bargain at $19.99. These are simple, short poems that will send the kiddos into slumber with visions of being with mom and dad and having a good day.
—The Pioneer Press
