It's time to sleep my love:
Has more spectacular illustrations, in my opinion
Rhymes are all perfect, or nearly
Rhythm is perfect, (the reason it's described as a lullaby)
Text is more evenly distributed, 1-2 lines per page (4 or so on the last few pages) so each page gets roughly equal face time without disrupting the story, also helps with the soothing bedtime rhythm.
Is so sweet it makes me cry every time
On the Night You Were Born:
Also has beautiful illustrations
Rhymes are sometimes there, sometimes not, which works if you know what's coming but this annoys me a bit
Rhythm also works if you know what's coming but is not even throughout
Text is not as evenly distributed. One page has three words and another has eight lines. You have to flip past the short ones pretty quickly to keep the story moving which is sad because they're so beautiful I'd like to spend a little more time on each. This is not a big deal and the book is still wonderful
Also is so sweet it makes me cry every time
Tells kids that they are unique and special and loved
Get both these books, you'll be happy you did!
I love the lyrical lilt of the words. I love how I can whisper them to her as she's falling asleep, as if it were some magical tune.
And we both love the images. Amazing artwork. She loves to look for the moon on almost every page, and to identify the different animals.

I'm a fan of a different book by the same author, but the pictures in this one seem a bit creepy. My kid also wasn't too fond of this book either.Published 11 days ago by TruthRevealer

I love how Nancy Tillman writes. Everything is very loving. This book is just that way. While being fun and exploring different animals it is written very sweetly.Published 17 days ago by Karah Cowan
