The moon is high. The sea is deep.Boynton's inimitable animal characters have graced the pages of scads of picture books over the years. She has an extraordinary knack for knowing what appeals to small children: simple rhymes, goofy animals in goofy settings, and sweet, comforting stories. This book, along with her many other board-book titles (Moo, Baa, La La La!, But Not the Hippopotamus, and others) will surely remain a favorite. (Baby to preschool) --Emilie Coulter

Sandra Boynton is gifted at coupling wonderful, readable verse with delightful illustration. Don't miss this book and don't hesitiate to purchase others from her collection. We have HUNDREDS of read aloud childrens books in this house. This ranks right up there with the absolute favorites and should be IMHO amongst the first books read to a cherished babe.
P.S. Don't miss "Doggies" either! If you read this one with FEELING they'll be begging for it time and again!
It closes with the animals settling down for the night: "They rock and rock and rock to sleep." Graced by Boynton's well-known illustrations and rhythmic, lullabye-like poetry, this is a great book for infants and toddlers alike. It's one of those books you'll keep long after the kid(s) grow up.
"The sun has set not long ago.
Now everybody goes below
To take a bath in one big tub
With soap all over, SCRUB-SCRUB-SCRUB!!!"
"They hang their towels on the wall
And find pajamas, big and small.
With some on top and some beneath,
They BRUSH and BRUSH and BRUSH their teeth."
"And when the moon is on the rise,
They all go up to exercise!
And down once more but not so fast,
They're on their way to bed at last."
"The day is done, They say goodnight,
And somebody turns off the light.
The moon is high. The sea is deep.
They ROCK and ROCK and ROCK to sleep."
One great buy, One great treasure to keep forever in our hearts. I highly recommend this Boynton Book.
This book is about several different animals in different shapes and sizes getting ready for bed on a boat. They brush their teeth, excersize and put on pajamas.
The illustrations are cute and her rythmic poetry is perfectly easy to read.
My daughter absolutely loves the pictures and she must like the sound of the words because she gets so excited by this book.
I personally like this book for reading at bedtime because of its length. Its short, sweet and to the point. And the very last page of the book "They rock and rock and rock to sleep" is perfect when read slowly to emphasize the end of the day.
Her books are precious and very inexpensive. This is not a book you will be donating or selling at a garage sale. Your baby/child will love it!

My favorite children's book of all time. My kids loved it growing up and I always order it as a baby gift for people.Published 2 days ago by Sabrina Wilkins
This is a very cute book with fun illustrations. It has rounded corners so it is baby safe too, which is a plus since they put everything in their mouths! Read morePublished 2 days ago by mamadoesitbest
It's okay. A little odd that they're doing exercise after they wash up. The book is not great and I wouldn't buy it again for someone else.Published 3 days ago by R123
