Review:

"'Durango (Dream Hop) found inspiration in the African-American spiritual 'All Night, All Day' to craft this picture book adaptation that emphasizes the comforting thought of heavenly angels watching over those of us on Earth. Rhyming couplets take a child from sunrise to sunset, imagining all the ways 'All day, all night' that the angels send their vigilant protection ('Day begins, dawn breaks anew/ Sun wakes up, I wake up too'/... 'Bird says sing, I hum a tune./ Cloud floats by, a lace balloon'). Some of the poetic imagery will likely challenge picture book readers who are used to a linear plot, but the melody of the language and its reverence for the natural world are sure to spark interest. Kleven's mixed-media compositions — watercolor, ink, collage and colored pencil — convey an appropriately dream-in-flight feeling, often utilizing an aerial perspective. Many young ones will find both wonder and reassurance in her depiction of angels — animals and children from around the globe hovering above the treetops sporting a variety of wings — and bucolic landscapes. Ages 2-5.' Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
