"A gorgeous ode to curling up for the night, this is the second book from the author Karen Jameson, a rising bedtime specialist who previously wrote "Moon Babies" and whose next book will be titled "Farm Lullaby." Here, each critter is given a sweet nickname and called to bed with a doubled couplet. . . . [I]llustrator Marc Boutavant's] sunset-to-twilight palette is rich. . . his compositions suggest girl, dog and fauna are all part of a larger, interwoven whole. Just lovely."-The New York Times
The book's lovely illustrations have a somnolent effect: as the girl runs through twilight settings, snow starts to fall; pinking skies peek through the dark branches, and adorable animals close their eyes to meet the quiet. Soon, it's time for dreams to swirl."-Foreword Reviews, starred review
"A sonorous, soporific invitation to join woodland creatures in bedding down for the night. . . . Jameson displays a rare gift for harmonious language and rhyme. . . . Sweet fare for bed- or naptimes, with a light frosting of natural history."-Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"[A] classic-feeling narrative that features graceful verse and detailed artwork. . . [Woodland Dreams is a] cozy goodnight read for sleepy animal lovers."-Publishers Weekly
