About the Author
Sam McBratney (1943−2020) is the author of the internationally best-selling classic Guess How Much I Love You and its sequel, Will You Be My Friend?, as well as All My Favorites, all illustrated by Anita Jeram. He also wrote Just You and Me and There, There, both illustrated by Ivan Bates, and Mindi and the Goose No One Else Could See, illustrated by Linda Ólafsdóttir, among many other books for children.
Anita Jeram is the illustrator of Guess How Much I Love You, the Guess How Much I Love You Storybooks, and You’re All My Favorites, all by Sam McBratney. She has also illustrated several books by Amy Hest, including Little Chick and a series about Sam and Mrs. Bear. Anita Jeram lives in Northern Ireland.
Effused with tenderness, McBratney's wise, endearing, and droll story is enriched by the near-monochromatic backdrop of Jeram's pen-and-wash artwork, rendered earthy tones of moss, soft brown, and gray for a visually quieting effect just right for that last soothing tale before sleep.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
An endearing nursery game is beautifully revitalized in this comforting, sleepy-time picture book. . . . There's not a wrong note in this tender tale, which should become an endearing bedtime favorite — right up there with Goodnight Moon.
—Booklist (starred review)
Every parent will relate.
A well-written gem with sprightly illustrations.
An extraordinary children's book that captures the unique dialogue between a parent and child.
The perfect bedtime story for sleepy little ones. Sam McBratney's soft, repetitive text is reminiscent of classic tales by Margaret Wise Brown (Goodnight Moon, The Runaway Bunny). . . . Anita Jeram's watercolor renderings of this endearing pair add sweet humor to a finely crafted book.
