Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Soft and warm, sweet and soothing, the stories and poems in this impressive, silver-jacketed anthology—complete with one hour of calming classical music on CD and for download—are just right for bedtime.

Youll find eight complete picture books: Five Little Monkeys Reading in Bed (Eileen Christelow), The Napping House (Don Wood/Audrey Wood), Bedtime Bunnies (Wendy Watson), Tell Me Something Happy Before I Go to Sleep (Joyce Dunbar/Debi Gliori), The Goodnight Train (June Sobel/Laura Huliska-Beith), The Quiet Book (Deborah Underwood/Renata Liwska), Gideon (Olivier Dunrea), and No Sleep for the Sheep (Karen Beaumont/Jackie Urbanovic).

And eight illustrated poems: Joyce Sidmans “Welcome to the Night,” the Curious George “My Curious Dreamer,” Maxine Kumins “Alligator,” Calef Browns “Young Moth,” Kristine OConnell Georges “Lullaby,” the traditional hawaiian lullaby “I Hold Thee My Baby,” Dana Jensens “The Stars Make Wishes,” and Bob Raczkas “With the Ember End.”

Pair this with The Family Storybook Treasury!

Review:

"Eight picture books with bedtime themes — including Audrey and Don Wood's The Napping House, Eileen Christelow's Five Little Monkeys Reading in Bed, Olivia Dunrea's Gideon, and Deborah Underwood and Renata Liwska's The Quiet Book — appear in this large, storytime-ready collection, which includes a CD of classical music. Poems by Joyce Sidman, Calef Brown, and others appear in between the eight stories, and are also presented with original illustrations from the books in which they first appeared. The stories in this keepsake anthology are well chosen, but the large, square format (which does not always mirror the original size of the stories contained within) results in some inelegant margins framing some of the selections. Ages 4 — 8. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

A beautiful gift book that's a great value. Features eight complete picture books by authors like Don and Audrey Wood, and Eileen Christelow, plus eight illustrated poems and one full hour of soothing classical music on CD. This comprehensive bedtime collection with silver cover accents makes a great holiday gift and is the ultimate book to send children off to a night of sleep and sweet dreams.

Synopsis:

In this endearing bedtime story, Willa's big brother helps her get to sleep by reminding her about all of the happy things around her. Willa is afraid of bad dreams. "Think of something happy," suggests her big brother, Willoughby. But Willa needs his help. So together they think of all the happy things that await her in the morning--cozy slippers to warm her little feet, a yummy breakfast, and the morning itself, which loves to gently nudge her awake. But for Willa, the happiest thing of all is knowing that Willoughby will be there in the morning, too, just like always. This reassuring bedtime book will quickly become a cherished addition to family libraries--favorite for grown-ups and little ones to share for years to come.
