Books reviews
I ordered three books by Eloise Wilkins because my son had so loved one of her books 30 years ago and I remember being melted by the pictures. Opening the first, I was startled as it seemed ALL the people in illustrations are of European descent, and I had planned on including the books with shower gifts -- and the first mother-to-be was of a darker ethnicity. Looking at this particular one again, it seems to have tried, with limited success, to incorporate non-'Europeans' in illustrations. I love the combining of nursery rhymes, poems, prayers and stories and expect the family I give the book to will have hours and hours of enjoyment from their favorites. I am especially delighted with the very last selection, from "Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner": "He prayeth well / Who loveth well, / Both man and bird and beast. / He prayeth best who loveth best / All things both great and small; / For the dear God Who loveth us, / He made and loveth all." This is a message I think children cannot hear too many times.
so cute but was disappointed that they stuck inside a newer more modern story which did not belong in this traditional book. I guess the liberals couldn't handle the old fashioned stories and had to put in their little propaganda.
Wonderful book. The most beautiful illustrations of children.
My parents used to read this to me every night before bed, and it quickly became one of my all time favorites. The stories are well illustrated and simple for young children to understand. I was happy to find it online here on amazon as, now, I can read the stories to my children. They love it, of course, they're always more drawn to the older classics ;-)
brought back memories of my childhood. thank you
I had the My Good Night Book as a child and it was one of my favorites. I searched for it today in a used book store for my newborn daughter but couldn't find it. However I did find this book and I am thrilled to have it. The illustrations are precious and the stories are so cute. I hope it will become one of her favorites. Already she was enthralled by the illustrations at only 8 weeks old.
I bought this book years ago when I was single because I am an artist and loved the children's illustrations. It is a beautiful book filled with beautiful and colorful illustrations on every page that coincides with each of the poems and short stories within. I am now married and have a little girl and this book is currently part of her library. I hope she will treasure it as much as I still do.
