Reviews

PRAISE FOR WILLIAM'S WINTER NAP

"It won't take listeners long to chime in on this repeated refrain . . . Groenink's illustrations deftly juxtapose the warm light of the cabin with the darkness outside, and his characters are expressive; few readers will be able to stifle their own yawns."--Kirkus Reviews
PRAISE FOR WILLIAM'S WINTER NAP

*"Beautifully paced, rhymed, and cadenced . . . The text reads aloud well, with natural places for kids to join in . . . a subdued palate of deep blues, grays, and tawny browns . . creates a strong sense of the setting and the appealing characters. Just right for reading aloud on cold, wintry nights." --Booklist (starred review)
PRAISE FOR WILLIAM'S WINTER NAP

*"Ashman's meticulously crafted rhymes are a delight to read, and the page turns build gently tension (who's at the door now?) Groenink makes the cabin look eminently cozy. . .And his forest creatures--who yawn in unison with William each time they try to get some shut-eye--are as adorable as it gets."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
