I like Sylvia Long's artwork and this is certainly a gentle, cozy bedtime read full of lots of cute critters getting ready for bed. But, I just didn't wanted the story to be different/special. But, could have just been my mood as this looks like a highly rated book, overall!

This traditional lullaby has been used for centuries to help children go to sleep. There are so many versions of this lullaby and what sets this one apart is the illustrations and story line.

A group of animals are on their way home. First, a fox is seen carrying a walking stick, so he must have traveled a distance.

This book is the traditional nursery rhyme is filled with little critters getting ready for bed and looking out their window. This book can be read in song or in story. As the critters are getting ready for bed it goes through the rituals that most people go through before bedtime. It is great to show children that not only do these critters brush their teeth and get tucked in, we all get tucked in!
