The text for Boats for Bedtime is simple; at times only one or two words per page, but every word is well-chosen. I especially like "Sail among the stars. Play around the moon" -- so evocative.

Melanie Hope Greenberg's illustrations manage the exactly right amount of magic and whimsy to match the lyrical text. Her lines are clean and her colors are brilliant. Her illustrations propel the story and take it from book's pages and into a land of dreams.
