Review: This is a really sweet little book of poetry. All the poems blend into each other, as the book explores how animals go to sleep. This would be a great bedtime book. The illustrations are sweet and peaceful, and correspond well with the poetry. The poetry has a nice, dreamy rhythm to it, as well.
