From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-- Arnosky's gentle introduction to the world of the muskrat reads like a bedtime story. In a spare text phrased as blank verse, the simple account follows a pair of muskrats as they emerge from their home in the late afternoon and swim and play and eat and race around the pond into the night. Softly textured double-spread paintings depict the rural cover surrounded by farm and hills and inhabited by ducks, birds, fish, insects, and a large turtle along with the muskrats. There are also cattails, water weeds, and lily pads, and as the sun sets, there is a golden swirl of reflection in the water. Green and blue predominate the simple, quasi-realistic scenes, and the colors move gradually from sunny late day hues to the dusky shades of night. It's an effective, appealing lesson in natural history for the very young. --Margaret Bush, Simmons College, Boston

From Publishers Weekly:

In the golden glow of a late summer afternoon, muskrats emerge from their homes in the cove. As day slips into night, they paddle about, dive, nibble at water weeds and frolic amid the cattails and water lilies. Lovely birds, dragonflies, fish and butterflies join the muskrats in their habitat. After sunset, the muskrats swim until dawn, accompanied by the other nocturnal animals and bugs. Using water-colors and colored pencils, Arnosky perfectly evokes the tranquillity of a slow summer evening. The flora and fauna are rendered exquisitely in great detail, with a softness that complements the book's mood. And the quiet text mirrors the stillness of the pond, making this soothing bedtime fare. Ages 3-5.
