"A gorgeous ode to curling up for the night, this is the second book from the author Karen Jameson, a rising bedtime specialist. . . .Just lovely — and the final spread, depicting the girl’s drawings of the animals she’s seen, is a perfect grace note."
—The New York Times
The book's lovely illustrations have a somnolent effect: as the girl runs through twilight settings, snow starts to fall; pinking skies peek through the dark branches, and adorable animals close their eyes to meet the quiet. Soon, it's time for dreams to swirl.- Foreword Reviews, starred review
A sonorous, soporific invitation to join woodland creatures in bedding down for the night. . . . Jameson displays a rare gift for harmonious language and rhyme. . . . Sweet fare for bed- or naptimes, with a light frosting of natural history.- Kirkus Reviews, starred review
