Every page is generously illustrated with lavish watercolors of children and animals winding down for a night's rest. For example, you have a small child perched on the back of a drifting swan as though going on the journey of sleep amd dreams for the evening. There is a child curled up with a sleeping panda in the fork of a tree branch. The interactions between people and children really appeal to small ones and encourage them to use their imaginations.
I found the soothing, repetitious verses with the refrain of "It's time to sleep, my love" to be soothing. The School Lobrary Journal criticized the writing stating that it was too redundant. My son finds it restful and it lulls him to sleep. They also complained that some of the verses would trip up parent tongues. I found the beauty of the words and verses to be old-fashioned and a little reminiscent of old poetry. We used to appreciate finding beauty and meaning in words, and it is beneficial to children to make them think. Overall, I thought the wording was fanciful, simple, and lovely.
I highly recommend this book for your child and hope you get as much enjoyment out of the bedtime tradition as we have.

We love her books and have nearly all of them. This honestly feels like it’s just made off the back of the others.
My son however does enjoy looking at the illustrations. I just don’t enjoy reading, whereas on the night you were born, I adore reading! Or I’d know you anywhere my love. Lovely sentimental bed time messages.
It's a lovely book and the illustrations are stunning, I especially love the tigers one, so beautiful. I love reading Nancy Tillman books to my little girl, I would recommend her books to anyone.
