"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.

"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.
