From Booklist:

Ages 4^-8. Why do I yawn when I'm tired? Why do tulips close up at night? Is there a man in the moon? Will I dream tonight? With one question and one clear explanation on every double-page spread, this cheerful title in the Question and Answer Storybook series focuses on what a child sees and wonders about in the darkness and at bedtime. The line-and-watercolor pictures of a bespectacled boy with his grandma and his teddy bear are not always as clear as the text. The book is about night, but the illustrations nearly all seem to be set in bright daylight. Especially in a science book, it can be confusing to see anthropomorphized flowers and stars and dancing molecules with cute faces. Still, the questions are the kind heard in every home and classroom and the explanations will make kids think--and ask more questions. Hazel Rochman
