[A] beautifully designed book… The elephants have an unfocused, sketchy look that pairs perfectly with twilight and dreams around the corner. This gentle lullaby in book form is perfect for sleepy toddlers and parents who will want to mimic the actions in the book.

a true delight
— TWO LITTLE HUMANS AND ME, October 2013
…the rhymes are completely child-centered, and inspire cuddling, stories and settling in to sleep… Fox’s simple rhyme and Quay’s soft pencil outlines and twilight palette attest to a complex understanding of what children at this age need in order to settle down: reassurance that their loved ones are near, consistency and cuddling… This new Mem Fox picture book is sure to become a nighttime favorite.
