Illustrations of stargazing animals accompany this well-known lullaby. Sitting atop a hill, the band of animals watches as the sun sinks below the horizon. They slowly walk home to their houses, where they are greeted by their parents. As the lamplighter fox walks past each house, readers are given a glimpse of the nighttime rituals taking place inside. Little frog enjoys a dinner of bugs and worms perched in his high chair. Squirrel brushes his teeth before taking one last look at the night sky. Raven is given a very splashy bath and baby possum is dressed in cozy pajamas. Baby skunk is read a bedtime story and mouse is tucked into bed in pajamas covered with wedges of Swiss cheese. Each sleeps peacefully as the gently rhyming verses come to an end. The lamp lighting fox, perched on the hilltop, closes the book with the final line: "Twinkle, twinkle, little star." Beautiful, bright watercolor illustrations of the little animals will keep young readers interest as the gentle verses slowly lull them to sleep. Wonderfully soothing. "(Picture book. 1-3)" (Kirkus Reviews)
Cherished for nearly two centuries, the traditional lullaby "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" continues to send children off to dreamland. In this tenderly illustrated edition of the classic rhyme, award-winning artist Sylvia Long touches the hearts of reader yet again. Her detailed watercolors depict a group of animal friends as they make their way home under the night sky to complete their bedtime rituals with their families. The last verse finds each baby animal nested in bed. Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star is the perfect bedtime story, sure to lull children to sleep.
