Published by Candlewick Press

Booklist Editor's Choice for Young Readers 2004

In this tender poem, Reeve Lindbergh and Jill McElmurry use an everwidening focus to show children the vast world outside their beds — and all the love and comfort to be found there.


A honey of a poem, artwork at once timeless and innovative, and a sweetly optimistic message distinguish this soothing bedtime book. — Booklist (starred review)

Bedtime reads lie thick upon the ground, but for its comforting message, flowing text, warm sentiment, and jewel-like art this comes close to such standards as Margaret Wise Brown's "Goodnight Moon" or Kate Bank's "And If the Moon Could Talk." — Kirkus Reviews
