Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2-There are many ways to get a child ready for bedtime, from a simple story and lights out to other, more serious efforts at creativity. Isaac is excited to spend time with his grandfather, but nervous about sleeping away from home for the first time. Clever Grandpop has the just the right idea to ease the child's fears. He asks him to help put the house to bed first. Although Isaac has little idea what that means, he carefully follows the older man's lead. Together, they walk quietly through the house, enter each room, gently close window shades, and turn off lights to make the old house "dark and cozy." Along the way, Grandpop explained each click, squeak, and creak Isaac hears, telling him, "This old house makes sleepy sounds, just like you." The realistic illustrations of Grandpop's old house, its interior, and the outside landscape make this tale even more tender. The art is as charming and endearing as Isaac and Grandpop's bedtime adventure. VERDICT The rituals of bedtime, as encompassing and timeless as the bonds between generations, elevate a simple tale and make it an essential purchase for every collection.-Maegen Rose, Rye Country Day Sch.,α(c) Copyright 2011.

Review

It’s a cozy story of a loving Black grandfather and grandson, and Bates mirrors Grandpop’s clever strategy with a smartly structured narrative. . . Ford’s illustrations have an unusual sturdiness and dimension for watercolors, with a touch of toylike charm in the surroundings, in the figures’ oversized heads, and in Snuffles, Grandpop’s amiable terrier. Adults will latch immediately onto Grandpop’s brilliant method, and this gently soporific read will be a joy for grandparents to share whether face to face or over FaceTime.
—The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)

Isaac loves spending time at Grandpop’s house, but is he brave enough for a sleepover?. . . . Ford’s illustrations of this loving Black duo within the comfy, older house are warm and tender. The rich honey-brown, gold, and blue hues are natural choices for a bedtime book. Isaac’s first-sleepover story is honest and one that young children will appreciate; adult readers will find it nostalgic. A delightful multigenerational story, perfect for bedtime or anytime a child is afraid.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

The art is as charming and endearing as Isaac and Grandpop’s bedtime adventure. . . . The rituals of bedtime, as encompassing and timeless as the bonds between generations, elevate a simple tale and make it an essential purchase for every collection.
—School Library Journal (starred review)

Bates delivers a heartfelt, affirming multigenerational narrative. . . This touching, expertly paced bedtime tale will resonate with anyone who’s had a sleepover or experienced fright in a new place, and serves as a soothing testament to a compassionate grandparent-grandchild relationship.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

In Ford’s rich-hued, warm-toned illustrations, books appear in nearly every room of the house, highlighting the centrality of literacy to this family and foreshadowing what will come next. . . . A fine, uplifting intergenerational story of literacy, literature, and homemade love.
—The Horn Book

The book, full of rich watercolors, is a tender portrayal of a grandparent and grandchild relationship.
