    1. Margaret Wise Brown wrote hundreds of books and stories during her life, but she is best known for Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny Even though she died nearly 60 years ago, her books still sell very well.Margaret loved animals Most of her books have animals as characters in the story She liked to write books that had a rhythm to them Sometimes she would put a hard word into the story or poem She thought this made children think harder when they are reading.She wrote all the time There are many scraps of paper where she quickly wrote down a story idea or a poem She said she dreamed stories and then had to write them down in the morning before she forgot them.She tried to write the way children wanted to hear a story, which often isn t the same way an adult would tell a story She also taught illustrators to draw the way a child saw things One time she gave two puppies to someone who was going to draw a book with that kind of dog The illustrator painted many pictures one day and then fell asleep When he woke up, the papers he painted on were bare The puppies had licked all the paint off the paper.Margaret died after surgery for a bursting appendix while in France She had many friends who still miss her They say she was a creative genius who made a room come to life with her excitement Margaret saw herself as something else a writer of songs and nonsense.

    2. This is a sweet book with dream pictures. If you aren't religious, you may want to avoid it because "H is for Heaven high over head"

    3. 1) No awards2) Pre-k to Kindergarten3) Easy your child to sleep as you also teach them their ABCs. Each letter has its own little passage that relates to something leading up to bed time or when they sleep. As you go through each one rhymes with the previous page giving a rhythmic feel of things to help ease them to sleep4) This book is offers a soothing sensation through its simple sentences with each letter. The art style uses more darker colors as supposed to neon styled colors making the pic [...]

    4. I loved the pictures. Karen Katz' animals are just as cute as her babies, if not more! Margaret Wise Brown's poetry was nice too but some if the letter examples were more on the abstract side for a toddler.

    5. This is a wonderful story to fall asleep to! Each letter of the alphabet is introduced in some whimsical way and each gets you that much closer to la la land.Ages: 3 - 6

    6. A bedtime alphabet book. Bold, neat illustrations. I can see a child wanting this read to him or her each night.

    7. This is an alphabet book that has sentences describing the letters all relating to nighttime and sleep. It is illustrated by Karen Katz - which is why I think my daughter was drawn to it. I did like the theme to all the descriptions, but some were very repetitive, like the author couldn't think of anything else for some of the descriptions so she just repeated one she'd used earlier.I enjoyed the illustrations, as I always do with Karen Katz. They're colorful, yet this still had a soft, sleepy f [...]

    8. My five-year-old son picked this book out from the library this week. The version we read featured illustrations by Esphyr Slobodkina, and was a reprint of the 1953 original. My son loves ABC books, but this one was a bit young for him. I only regained his attention after I added the word "like Molly" (our kitten) after some of the stanzas. That the text is too young for my son is not a criticism, however. Had I discovered this book two years ago, I probably would have bought it -- even though I [...]

    9. "Sleepy ABC" by Margaret Wise Brown was an okay read. I had gotten the book from the library previously for my daughter to help with her ABCs, and it certainly does thate pictures illustrated by Karen Katz are a great complement to the book. My daughter really enjoyed looking at the pictures and all the different colors.However, I checked this book out a 2nd time because it was recommended to me as a book I could read to my daughter when trying to get her to go to sleep. Wellter we finished with [...]

    10. I am on the hunt for a good ABC book, and I have two criteria. First, I want the book to tell a story, not just be a random assortment of words. Second, I want the illustrations to show each letter prominently and clearly. (Even young babies can start to discern geometric shapes like letters. See the book "Baby Minds" for more information.)[return][return]Of the 10 or so ABC books I flipped through at the library, this one had the biggest and clearest letters, although the background behind each [...]

    11. Awards: NoneAppropriate grade level: Preschool and aboveSummary: This is a book describing 26 ways to say goodnight incorporating the alphabet. It shows the different ways that different animals, things, and people say goodnight and show that they are tired. With incredible illustrations is helps children visualize the whole world going to bed when they do.Review: This is a great way to teach children the concept of diversity. It shows them that everyone and everything says goodnight in a differ [...]

    12. Huh, is this really written by Margaret Wise Brown, but illustrated by Karen Katz? Interesting. I assumed it was a Katz book from her signature illustrations. This was read at the end of play group today. Natalie was interested for a bit, but then went off to play with her new friend (who has the same birthday as her!). I think it would make a better bed time book for a child a bit older, since it is long for a one year old to sit through.

    13. This book is adorable! The artwork (Karen Katz) is simple but the colors are bright. This book provides "26 ways to say goodnight" as it goes through each letter of the alphabet. "K is for kissing your mother goodnightL is for listening when they turn out the light". I think children would love this book because of the colors and rhyme. Parents will also enjoy this book because it is a quick and easy read that provides a fun and clever way to introduce the alphabet.

    14. We just got this title in. It is part of my enrichment, and my attempt to increase the number of ABC books that I know of to provide to parents. I like that it has a story to go with the concept. Also this edition is durable, which is good because I'm sure it will check out every 2-3 weeks for the next 7-20 yrs.

    15. Perfect bedtime alpha review for the Little ones. Full of things toddlers love like animals and being tucked in by mom. Bright pictures keep them interested but not over stimulated for sleep. What a great way to master the alphabet maybe even get them to dream up some letters and make up there own rhymes. Just Perfect!

    16. Kind of disappointing, considering Brown and Slobodkina's well-deserved reputations. It starts nice: Aaah, Baaa, Caw - but by the time you get to X, you get "X is for all the things you can play" - huh? Seems like someone got awful lazy. But still, deliver us from the revised Karen Katz illustrations. She can only do one picture and she does it on every page.

    17. I read this book as a children's librarian looking for good board books for a storytime thus the one star review. It is a very loose alphabet book and much too long to read to a group at storytime. Perhaps it is best read one on one with a baby/toddler but again, it's not a great alphabet book. It would have been a better bedtime book.

    18. each letter of the alphabet represents an animal sound or something associated with going to bed like animals snoring or visions of dreaming. Etc. Cute and each page is one letter but several lines.

    19. I wasn't a fan of the illustrations. I don't like the part of the book that says:"X is for all the things you can play."This is the same author that wrote "Goodnight Moon" and "Runaway Bunny!?"I think I'll look for some different ABC books.

    20. "Sleeping ABC" is an alphabet book that will help with letter knowledge in children. It is a colorful and large print for visuals. A is for Aaaaah when a small kitten sights. Great for print awareness and motivation too.

    21. This book received mixed reviews so I wanted to see it for myself. Yes, I understand some of the verses are far-fetched and sound ridiculous. I could still use it in a storytime, however. There are ways to get around the text in a storytime setting.

    22. Adorable edition with illustrations by Karen Katz. Bright and big pictures perfect for early literacy experiences, pre-k storytime.

    23. Not impressed with the read. I'm not surprised as I feel that everything written by Wise Brown is automatically granted greatness without meriting it. Enjoyed Katz' illustrations though.

    24. I love the illustrations in this book! They are so antiquated and charming, you feel like you are holding onto a piece if Americana history.

    25. It's a nice book but some of the letters don't make sense to the barely there story. X is for all the toys I don't think so.

    26. Kind of cool how they took Margaret Wise Brown's text from 1953 and updated the artwork in 2010. Some may think this is sacrilege but I think it works. A lovely Pajama Storytime type of book.
