“I love every aspect of When the World Is Ready for Bed. The illustrations range from warm yellows, browns, and oranges that parallel the sunset and the cozy inside of the bunny home to the cool blues and greens that emerge with the night. The story gently guides the little bunnies through their evening routine in perfect rhyme and simple text in this highly recommended, soothing story.”
— Angela K Sherrill, 57th Street Books, Chicago, IL
