Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS–Dyer illustrates a text that was originally published as Eyes Nose Fingers Toes (Harper & Row, 1964; o.p.). Gentle rhymes tell the story of a toddler saying good night to her surroundings, her stuffed animals, and her mother. She snuggles her lamb, touches noses with her bear, and compares toes with her dinosaur. The simple spreads on which the baby bids good night to her toys are awash with soothing pastel watercolor backgrounds. While the stuffed animals are endearing, the child and her mother are not as appealing; they have old-fashioned, doll-like, and expressionless round faces delineated by a few simple lines and tiny rosebud mouths. The few pages where there is more color, detail, pattern, and activity work the best.–Shelley B. Sutherland, Niles Public Library District, IL

From Booklist

PreS. Forty years after Krauss first published Eyes Nose Fingers Toes, Dyer gives the old favorite a new title and creates new, clear, beautiful watercolor pictures of a toddler cuddling a doll, nose to nose with a teddy bear, toe to toe with a soft dinosaur, then touching windows, doors, walls, floor, chairs, and finally tucked in bed, "sleepyhead." The elemental rhyme and the spacious pictures from the toddler's viewpoint make this a great companion to Margaret Wise Brown's classic Good Night, Moon. Hazel Rochman

We originally checked this book out at our local library and she fell in love with it so much, I had to get it for her for Christmas.

This book is a must! It is a very simple yet very educational book for preschoolers. You can read the bed time story and along the way ask them to pick out their body parts that are mentioned in the story. I actually read this book to my 1 year old and he loves it. He loves to look at the wonderful pictures. Great bed time ritual!!

We borrowed both these books from the library and read them every night to my granddaughter. We renewed them for as long as we could till the library wouldn't ket us. So I bought both of them the same day we had to take them back, my granddaughter cried so much when they left. Both sre very good.
