SUCH a good bedtime book! I actually enjoy reading it every night unlike many other bedtime stories that put me to sleep with boredom. The pictures and prose are both beautiful. And the main character is a female of color! Hooray for diverse books!

this book was given to my son as a gift back in the early 90's and i fell head over heels in love with it. the artwork is gorgeous and the words are like a song. i have bought countless copies as gifts for the children of friends and relatives, and even for certain grown-ups with child-like hearts. i wish there was a higher rating i could give, in my opinion this book is the best of the best.

This book was one of our favorites to read to our children. Just gave it at a baby shower. Not many people know about this wonderful book! Great for instilling a wonder of nature :)

This is one of the most beautiful children's books I've ever read. Both the prose and the illustrations are gorgeous. I like reading it just for myself as well as for my kids. It perfectly evokes the peacefullness and wonder of summer nights.

I have wanted a copy of this book since the copy I read to my son as child got misplaced. It made me happy for this book to show up @ my door with no hassle.

Jerry Pinkney's illustrations are works of art in themselves. And it's a lovely, lyrical story.

This book is a great book to read kids before bed time. It's about a girl named Susan as she sleeps in her bed at night. It describes a lot of the things that are going on at the same time in the world like animals in the woods, Johnny playing his saxophone, and a boat on its way to dock. It has the rhythm of a lullabye and is a great nighttime book. I have nothing to add to this book because it's perfect the way it is. So I'm giving it 5-STARS and I recommend you read it, too!
It is a good set of rhymes, and wonderful illustrations.
It is soothing.
