A Favorite for Sleepy Time 10 Mar 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book has become very special in our family and is our favorite bedtime book. The author takes a child through the nighttime with animals and people in the garden, the city, on the ocean, in her own home. Easy to read or to read to, easy to memorize, and such calming and gentle verse that you'll find yourself repeating it to yourself at day's end: "Up above the earth so far, Hang half a moon and one whole star, Hang one whole star and half a moon: Nighttime will be coming soon.

Bed Time Book 11 Mar 2003
By Dave P - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Library Binding
This book is a great book to read kids before bed time. It's about a girl named Susan as she sleeps in her bed at night. It describes a lot of the things that are going on at the same time in the world like animals in the woods, Johnny playing his saxophone, and a boat on its way to dock. It has the rhythm of a lullabye and is a great nighttime book. I have nothing to add to this book because it's perfect the way it is. So I'm giving it 5-STARS and I recommend you read it, too!

the most beautiful children's bedtime story i've ever seen! 11 April 2014
By dawn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
this book was given to my son as a gift back in the early 90's and i fell head over heels in love with it. the artwork is gorgeous and the words are like a song. i have bought countless copies as gifts for the children of friends and relatives, and even for certain grown-ups with child-like hearts. i wish there was a higher rating i could give, in my opinion this book is the best of the best.

This is one of the most beautiful children's books I've ever read. Both the prose and the illustrations are gorgeous. I like reading it just for myself as well as for my kids. It perfectly evokes the peacefullness and wonder of summer nights.

By John Cleary III - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It is a good set of rhymes, and wonderful illustrations.
It is soothing.
My youngest daughter stumbled into a Dragonwagon book and we got everything at her level, so many years past.
