Night is falling, and all the animals of the wood are going to bed. Each creature has its own routine and its own cozy woodland home, from Velvet Nose the moose who wades ashore after a day of eating pond weed, to Swift Legs the fox who curls up in a mountain den. And once every creature is tucked in tight, shhh... It's time for everyone to say goodnight.
In Woodland Dreams, young readers say goodnight to beloved woodland animals as they prepare to sleep. The lyrical text is soothing and sleep-affirming, and the charming illustrations capture the beauty and mystery of the wild. This sweet bedtime book is at once a picture book and a lullaby, pairing familiar bedtime routines with nonfiction elements to add a sweet touch to your own bedtime routine.
"In a classic-feeling narrative that features graceful verse and detailed artwork, readers follow a child with peach skin and long sandy hair as she bids goodnight to animals at day’s end. Clad in a teal coat and red-orange boots, she pads through the woods with her black dog, repeating the phrase 'Come home' to each animal they encounter.... A warmly autumnal color palette, rich with browns, oranges, and forest greens, enriches the illustrations, which present expansive forest scenes in grainy and sponge-like textures. A cozy goodnight read for sleepy animal lovers." — Publishers Weekly
