Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

PW praised Westerman's "thoroughly dreamlike" characters and setting in her "soothing" interpretation of a classic bedtime verse. Ages 5-8.

From School Library Journal

Starred Review. PreSchool-Grade 2—Potter's fanciful, artistic interpretation is ideal for this 19th-century poem about the wistful place between sleep and dreams. Wynken, Blynken, and Nod are portrayed as three young boys in matching green pajamas, wooden shoes, and red hats. They embark in their vessel, a large wooden shoe, and sail "...on a river of crystal light,/Into a sea of dew." Sea and sky flow into one another and soon the lads are speeding through the air, where the "little stars" are "herring fish" and the young fishermen cast their nets. The wooden shoe brings them home, where readers learn that the episode is a lullaby sung by a mother to her son who is tucked in bed, snug in his green pajamas with his toy fish. Done in Potter's characteristic style, each spread is a dreamy still life; the mixed-media paintings are drenched in the calming blues of the sea and sky, and the muted hues lend a soporific tone. There is an otherworldly quality to the artwork, and a note describes why the illustrator was attracted to this poem. Share this vividly imagined book with youngsters who need a little help gaining entry to the world of dreams.—Shawn Brommer, South Central Library System, Madison, WI

I raised my 4 children with this book and now am introducing my grandchildren to it. Always the last read at night and we all knew it by heart. Pleasant dreams were inspired from this poem and what a peaceful way to fall asleep. I really appreciated the poem but the illustrator definately grasped the feel of the words.

This book has been a long time favorite of my daughter-in-law. Now that she and my son are soon expecting their first child she asked that I purchase the book... this is one of two books that will be part of their family tradition. It will be read by my son to his daughter at first on cassette tape where she will get to know her daddy's voice and then when he comes home and holds her for the first time. It is a great book! Great enough to send to Iraq in love of the miracle we are waiting for.

I picked up this edition of "Wynken, Blynken, and Nod" at the preschool arts lab where I work, and remembered that the poem has been set to music. Using the lovely pictures and singing the song, I kept a group of three year olds enthralled for fifteen minutes...without a sound. Such is the power of this dreamy little poem. Nets of silver and gold has this story, and Westerman's illustrations are stars in the twinkling foam.

I was not introduced to this poem until I was 18. We were performing it in concert as a part of Midge of Gold which is a collection of children's tales set to music. I fell in love with it and when I found out it was an actual book, it became one of the first gifts I give to parents and children. The melody is one that stays with me and it's a great lulaby. This book is worth more than what you will pay for it. I have not met one person who read it as a child and didn't love it. The poem and illustrations are wonderful. Buying this book for your child, or any child, is a great investment.

This beautiful classic nursery rhyme by Eugene Field has comforted children off to sleep for generations and has endured as a favorite for good reason. The lovely, peaceful verse sings to us of a river of crystal light, a sea of dew, twinkling foam, nets of silver and gold, a moon that laughs and a wind that ruffles the waves. The illustrations that Johanna Westerman has supplied are the perfect compliment to this treasured story and are executed in watercolors using mostly sea green, blue and torquoise to create a moonlit vision of dreamland as the three children, Wynken, Blynken and Nod, set sail with their cat in a charming boat shaped like a wooden shoe. This is a soothing and gentle bedtime story and I highly recommend it.

I loved this poem when I was little, so I wanted a cute book with the poem for my own little one. I found this and have been very happy. We have the board book version with the three children in the wooden shoe on the cover. The mother is a young looking redhead. Not sure if all the illustrations are the same based on some of the reviews. The illustrations in our copy are lovely. My daughter loves looking at them. She is only 2 and can nearly recite the entire poem on her own because we have read it to her so often. My husband and I have it memorized completely and recite it with and without the book all the time for her.

This is a book that my father grew up on, and after having kids of his own, read it to us. As we grew up, this book had somehow disappered, and, having missed it so much, set upon looking for it on the internet. This is a beutiful children story, but not only for children... Don't miss it!

Beautifully illustrated! My granddaughter (age 3) asked a hundred questions while I was trying to read the poem. This means, to me, that she is trying to put the illustration with the poem. She thoroughly enjoyed it and kept saying "again" at the end. A very old poem still marches on!
