Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—Written in rhyme with playful language, this picture-book fantasy with rollicking artwork makes a fun read. A whistle blows. Children, adults, and animals board a locomotive for an imaginative ride to Dreamland. The train's inventive cars and lively, abstract cartoonlike passengers zig zag, make loopy loops, and clickety-clack across the bouncy railroad tracks, passing through "Wiggletown," "Giggletown," "Yawwwwwn," "Groggy Grove," and "Snuggle Cove." The energetic train gradually slows as dozing passengers arrive in Dreamland. Watercolor and marker artwork with accents of graph-paper shapes convey the tale's changing moods. This entertaining bedtime story is a worthy choice for most collections.—Lynn K. Vanca, Akron-Summit County Public Library, Richfield, OH

Melanie has played theatre music in regional theaters all over the country and was in the original Broadway cast of Quilters in 1984.

Format: Hardcover
This is a delightful book that takes your child on a journey from wakefulness to sleep, on a very clever train ride. We go from Wiggletown, the town of Yawwwwwn, Groggy Grove and Snuggly Cove, and other sleepy stops along the way, to the final destination...Dreamland. I bought this book for my three year old Grandson, and he absolutely loves it. We can never stop at just one reading, he has to board that train twice, at least. The book is very well illustrated with colorful, fanciful drawings. This is a" must read" for any preschooler, I highly recommend it, so does my grandson!!

Good Night Lullabies CD

The writing is catchy - lots of fun words and rhymes. The illustrations are sweet also. I read it in a soft voice, so it sounds almost like a lullaby, which helps my little grandchildren feel calmed by the rhythm of the words.

This wonderful book is a total joy and delight. I bought it for my granddaughter, but I couldn't resist reading it first for myself. Now I'm having to force myself to gift it. I can handle it, though. Julia is worth it.

My kids get to pick out a book each for bedtime, then I finish up with this one. It is just the right length, just the right words and pictures to set the mood for a comfortable nights sleep. I recommend it for all sleepy parents and children!
