PreS-Gr 1—Looking for a soothing and gentle way to settle small children for a nap or bedtime? Melissa Everett expands these two traditional nursery rhymes into quiet verses to prepare children for a rest or a night of sleep. The "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" segment begins with the classic tune fading into new verses, which express a parent or caregiver's love for a child, their little star. "Star Light, Star Bright" uses the timeless nursery rhyme and branches into additional verses conveying parental love. Reminiscent of Margaret Wise Brown's Goodnight Moon, this work features comforting narration that will make children feel safe and adored. Colorful and distinctive illustrations complete this tender and restful nighttime ritual.—Nancy Baumann, Literacy Consultant, Columbia, MO
