Sweet Dreams

Sweet Dreams: A Bedtime Storybook Collection. Various Authors. Scholastic, 2007.

The authors and illustrators vary from story to story with the overall theme being bedtime and sleep. The stories include: If You Were My Bunny, Thank You Prayer, Good Night, Sleep Tight, Little Bunnies, and Wynken, Blynken, and Nod. Each story is very repetitive and rhythmic, perfect for lulling little ones to sleep. Snugglebug and Ladybug's favorite of the collection is Good Night, Sleep Tight, Little Bunnies. It's so rhythmic it's almost like a lullaby. Some of the text reads:

Hidden in the meadow,

Among the pretty flowers,

Little Bunnies dream away

The long night hours.

Good night, sleep tight,

Little bunnies.

It continues in the same rhythm for several animals. And the illustrations are just as beautiful as the text.

Snugglebug enjoyed this book and has fallen asleep to the stories on a couple of different occasions. Ladybug would highly recommend this book as a bedtime book for all ages.
