★ "Whether read as Zen nature walk, bedtime story, or gentle science starter, this story begs to be visited again and again."--Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

"Downing invites listeners to revel in the night with soft illustrations depicting four nocturnal animals (a fox, owl, mouse, and raccoon) and a complementary series of soothing quatrains describing their routines."--The Horn Book

"A short, sweet, simple book for bedtime. . . . Glowing illustrations support a poetic text for a visit to what goes on while children sleep."--School Library Journal

"Downing adds rich depth to her full-bleed illustrations, dense with background detail and sumptuous, velvety color, while the onomatopoeic text melds seamlessly into the rest of the lines. . . . With an easy poetic tempo and artwork teeming with ambiance and tone, this will be an enchanting pick for storytime."--Booklist
