Editorial Reviews

Review

A farmyard's worth of animals smile their way through this rhyming poem cum bedtime book about what makes each one of them happy. Rylant (Baby Face, reviewed above) starts off with brisk, chirpy lines: "Kitty loves a garden/ Kitty loves a rose./ Kitty loves to walk up high/ On her kitty toes." Working in watercolors and wax crayons, in panels and vignettes, Bates (Farmer Dale's Red Pickup Truck) animates the verse with an unapologetically anthropomorphized cast of creatures: his Bunny lounges against a gardener's workbasket as it snacks on lettuce leaves; his Mousey clasps pretty leaves in its paws as it gazes, enthralled, at a ladybug overhead. It's almost as if a particularly cute stuffed-animal collection had been the models. The tempo slows down a little as the woman seen gardening earlier reappears, now indoors and holding a smiling baby: "Baby loves his mama, who will/ Kiss his sleepy head." By the last page, the baby sleeps ensconced in his crib, with all the beaming animals arrayed in the window and along the sill: Chickie on Piggy's head, Mousey next to Kitty and so forth. A good choice for those who like their bedtime books served sunny-side-up. Ages 3-5. (Mar.) (Publishers Weekly ) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is a great bed time story. Enjoyable for years to come. The words and pictures are simple and lovely. It has been re-read many times.

Both my son of 3 and daughter of 2 love the book. The illustrations are cute and the narration is not too wordy for smaller children, yet the story is captivating enough for an older child.

My daughter loves this book. We have been reading it almost every night since christmas. She loves to make the animal sounds and do some of the motions of the animals. She especially loves when it is time to kiss the baby's sleepy head.
