"Sweetly imaginative, linguistically rich, and featuring enlivening
vocabulary with lots of active verbs and new and interesting nouns
and adjectives, this offers a fresh entry in the familiar canon of
bedtime reads. Children will be delighted by the various animals'
activities and the notion that feathered, furred, and scaly
sleepers like themselves enjoy nothing better than dreaming of
kids. A delightful answer to the oft-asked question, do animals
dream?" -Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"VanDerwater's lullaby of a picture book... (has) well-crafted, undulating rhymes... a lovely bedtime sendoff for animal-loving children that will leave them with ample imaginative fodder for their own dreams. - Publishers Weekly
"Footie pajamas, a stuffy, and a bed begin this bedtime tale... (that) invites readers to imagine what animals see in their dreams. This picture book, filled with vibrant colors, is a bedtime story that will delight young animal lovers. A soothing addition." - School Library Journal
