From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-Lush watercolor illustrations decorate this assortment of 21 bedtime rhymes that range from the simple to the silly to the sleep-inducing. Jack Prelutsky, Christina Rossetti, and Nancy Willard are among the poets represented here. Among the works included are Eugene Field's "Wynken, Blynken, and Nod" and many different odes to the moon, such as Sue Cowling's "Half Moon Cottage," Kathryn Maxwell Smith's "The Moon," and John Rice's "Midnight's Moon." A variety of page layouts reinforces both the diversity and the dreamlike quality of the collection. Lutwidge Sedgwick's "Lullaby" is illustrated with numerous panels, a technique that incorporates many of the objects mentioned in the poem without giving the page a cluttered look. Mary Jane Carr's "Shop of Dreams" is set amid soft green hillsides with grazing sheep, a cozy thatch-roofed shop, and a rosy-cheeked moon floating over the horizon. Round-faced, stylized figures move about this dreamland where many shades of blue paint the night sky. More similar in mood to Jane Dyer's Animal Crackers (Little, Brown, 1996), this collection does not have the global approach of Jane Yolen's Sleep Rhymes around the World (Boyds Mills, 1994). All three books make wonderful choices for sharing aloud.

From Booklist:

PreS-Gr. 1. A very pretty bedtime book that manages to be both sweet and sassy. The poems chosen (it is not indicated who chose them) range from Eugene Field's venerable and adorable "Wynken, Blynken, and Nod" to Nancy Willard's contemporary "Rock Me." Most are a handful of lines, but a few are longer. Kathryn Maxwell Smith's "The Moon" in its entirety reads "Tonight the color / Of the moon / Is amber tea / In a silver spoon." The watercolor illustration matches it elegantly in tone and timbre, with its rose-garlanded teacup looming over a row of quiet houses and the full-faced moon in a violet sky. A dollop of silliness--for instance, Jack Prelutsky's "Last Night I Dreamed of Chickens"--plays off against the dreamy mystery of Malachy Doyle's "The Dancing Tiger." Eve Merriam, Christina Rossetti, and Sylvia Plath are included as well. GraceAnne DeCandido
