Love!

On 3/7 Chat With Vera wrote: The artist beautifully renders twilight and deepening shadows of the evening and bedtime in shades of blue that are comforting and appealing instead of the blackness that is often scary to a small child. So a real plus for capturing this so nicely. Then the variety of animals portrayed in familiar bedtime ... Don't Close Your Eyes: A Silly Bedtime Story by Bob Hostetler & published by Thomas Nelson

On 2/28 Consulting Writer wrote: What a cute picture book. The start of the story notes the sun is setting, the moon is found, but don't close your eyes because "you have much to think about". The scene is a green field with a treehouse on the side and a family of rabbits, with one particularly wide-eyed rabbit that reminds me so much ... LOVED the illustrations in this book!
