The Dream Train: Poems for Bedtime

author: Sean Taylor
illustrator: Anuska Allepuz

When night arrives and the birds swoop home to nest, itís time to have a bath, put on pajamas, brush teeth, and settle in for sleep. This soothing collection of Sean Taylorís original verse and rhyme for the very young explores the ritual of bedtime with warmth, tenderness, and gentle humor. Thirty poems in many styles, from shape poems to free verse to ballad poems, are divided into three sections. From sleepy bats to dreaming ducks, from a favorite blanket to the chugga! chugga! of a dream train coming down the tracks, these imaginative variations on a timeless themeóbrought to life in soft, shimmering illustrationsóresonate with pure emotion, inviting sleepyheads of every stripe to indulge in sweet dreams.

A dreamy treasure trove of thirty bedtime poems to snuggle over togetheróand return to night after night
