A pretty bedtime story.
"Kirkus Reviews"
" " 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.
"School Library Journal
"""Sweet Dreams" captures the essence of the genre. The writing is light and benevolent, the drawings both familiar and fresh."
"Wall Street Journal
""The text forms the scaffolding for Corace's elegant spreads, in which distinctively stylized, sharp-cornered figures are muted by a twilight palette."
