PreS-K. This atmospheric bedtime book offers a quiet celebration of nighttime sounds. At dusk in a picturesque country village, a little girl preparing for bed identifies after-dark creaks, rustles, and rumbles as "lullabies" sung by the night. Lilting verse in a second-person voice ("Up you go / Tippy-toe") invites children inside cozy domestic scenes, as the rocking-chair rhythms and soothing words demystify scary unknowns: "Hear the hissing / Soft as kissing, / From the radiator grate. . . . The house is singing lullabies." The text lacks a true story line, but it conveys a vivid sense of cocooning safety, unpunctured even in the wake of a "crashing" thunderstorm, and Brooker's distinctive collage-and-paint illustrations effectively juxtapose the bright farmhouse interiors with the increasingly dramatic outdoor scenes. Some of the verse imagery, such as one line involving a pet cat "shadowboxing with your nose," may not speak to children, but kids who harbor bedtime anxieties will gain courage from the notion of a night filled with friendly, serenading presences.
