KIRKUS REVIEW

Everybody sleeps--the baby seal beside the sea, the bear cub in the woods, the little beaver in a lodge by the lake, the baby hedgehogs in the green hedgerow, etc.--but no one sings them a lullaby. The baby owl sleeps all day and sits at the window at night...""Who is that singing a lullaby?"" A mother and father are singing softly to the baby asleep in the cradle, ""Sleep my little one, sleep."" In each double-page spread, the daytime alertness and nighttime stillness of a particular animal is caught with affecting simplicity, making an attractive album for the littlest that also beckons them quietly to bed.
