Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this sweet rhyming picture book, a mother prepares her daughter for bed by telling her about the different animals that live nearby and their nighttime activities. The motherandrsquo;s narrative comes full circle from night to dawn, and the little girl is lulled to sleep dreaming about her animal friends.

Lyrical writing and warm illustrations from the bestselling author-illustrator team of Rose A. Lewis and Jen Corace make this a perfect bedtime book.

Praise for Sweet Dreams

andldquo; A prettyandhellip;bedtime story.andrdquo;

andmdash;Kirkus Reviews

andldquo;As a lullaby should, this book has soothing language and illustrations in comforting colors. The rhymes are sweet and satisfying when read aloud. This is a lovely book that any parent or grandparent would enjoy sharing.andrdquo;

andndash;School Library Journal

andquot;Sweet Dreams captures the essence of the genre. The writing is light and benevolent, the drawings both familiar and fresh.andquot;

andmdash;Wall Street Journal

andquot;The text forms the scaffolding for Coraceandrsquo;s elegant spreads, in which distinctively stylized, sharp-cornered figures are muted by a twilight palette.andquot;

In sincere and imaginative dialogue between a not-at-all sleepy child and understanding parents, the little girl decides and#8220;in a cocoon of sheets, a nest of blankets,and#8221; she is ready to sleep, warm and strong, just like a tiger.
