KIRKUS REVIEW

A little pajama-clad boy recalls special times through out the year when he can wear his cozy and colorful pajamas. Worn on a snow day in January, on family night in March, and while watching the fireworks on the Fourth of July, the black-haired preschooler leaps across the pages in his PJs, singing the refrain “Time for pajamas, my jamas, mine-o.” The playful and bright watercolor and gouache paintings depict a warm and loving family, and are the strongest part of this package. Told in rhyme and following the calendar year, there are some lovely images here, but the language seems forced at times. Fittingly illustrated by pajama designer Nakata, this looks to be a fun choice for bedtime, but the slight story makes it a title most libraries can do without. (Picture book. 2-6)
