Is it time for bed already? Before a young child settles down for a peaceful sleep, she must bid her surroundings -- bear nose and dinosaur toes alike -- an affectionate goodnight.
This classic text by Ruth Krauss, originally published as eyes nose fingers toes, is brought to a new generation of sleepyheads by the best-selling illustrator Jane Dyer.

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
