Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Former Children's Poet Laureate Nesbitt compiles a dizzyingly creative assortment of new bedtime-ready poems, each of which can be read in less than a minute. Calef Brown, Margarita Engle, J. Patrick Lewis, Marilyn Singer, and Lemony Snicket are among dozens of contributors, whose works vary widely in tone, form, and subject. Niemann's minimalistic illustrations-rendered in muted shades of blue, brown, and green-accentuate each poem. In Ron Koertge's "Bedtime on 7th Avenue," where "Even graffiti opens its loud neon mouth and yawns," Niemann shows a water tower snoozing on its side. And in Nina Laden's ode to a chameleon ("Of all the kinds of lizards/ He's really quite a wizard"), the reptile is snugly incorporated into a thickly outlined jigsaw puzzle. With a broad range of voices and sentiments, the collection delivers poems to meet any mood. Ages 4-8. (Nov.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
