It is the end of the day, the sun is dipping towards the horizon, and a little bunny is cuddled up in his bed with his stuffed animal. After getting a goodnight kiss from his mother, the little bunny gets ready for sleep.

   It is time for dreams “in soothing colors, shapes, and sounds” to fill his mind; they will take him to a place where he experiences and sees wonderful things that make him happy. Among other things he should dream of “clouds like puffy pillows,” and “Gentle raindrop showers / giving drinks to thirsty flowers.” He might see “fireflies that blink and flash” and “Purple twilight skies.”

   In this perfect bedtime book, beautifully crafted rhyming verses are paired with lovely illustrations to give little children a bedtime wish full of happy dreams that are inspired by Mother Nature’s gifts.
