Though not entirely sappy, this inoffensive collection of bedtime rhymes doesn’t exactly charm, either. A series of animal families—bunnies, bears, mice—go through the bedtime rituals of bath and story and goodnight hugs and kisses. The illustrations are by various artists, each listed in the credits on the verso, although they maintain some unity of image: soft colors, rounded shapes, gentle light, lots of stars. Some of the animal families wear clothes, and some do not, but all live in pretty homes, some of which are tucked into natural habitats like rabbit holes or burrows. A good indication of the tone: “In the glow of the lamplight, / We’re tucked in so snug, / With our favorite toy, And a goodnight hug!” It will surely find its audience. (Picture book. 3-6)
