My review of The Bedtime of the sky


The stories that Wolfe shares with her young readers in this book is just adorable.  She has written them in rhyming verse. They are unique her own creations.  The illustrations are just as fantasy and bedtimey. The main picture fits each story and then the boarder compliments each subsequent page of the story.   My favorite story was There's a Baby in the Sink. The little boy finds out that a kitchen sink can be used for more things than washing dishes when mom uses it to wash his baby sister.  Dolly Dear was cute too; as was The Bedtime of the Sky.  Don't forget that Christmas is coming.  Give books they last a long time.  You child will love the stories that Wolfe has made up.  I'd like to thank the author, Carolyn Wolfe, for supplying me with a copy of this book for this review.

In this, Ms. Wolfe’s fifth book, she has returned to her roots. Wolfe started writing childrens stories in verse in the early 80’s in order to have her nephew and nieces enjoy them. Now, she has compiled them into a short collection to be enjoyed by everyone! As you can tell from the title, “The Bedtime Of The Sky and Other Sleepy Bye Stories” was specifically written for reading at bedtime. From Dragons hiding in the sock drawer, to a Mom designing the Universe, these stories are full of magical imagery and beautifully colored illustrations that are designed to delight any young heart and let them drift peacefully off to dreamland!






Carolyn Anne Wolfe is an author and free-lance writer whose body of work includes four previously published books, poetry, short stories and a number of newspaper articles and editorials. Wolfe is an animal and human rights activist as well as a vegetarian and these beliefs are strongly reflected in her writing. She lives with her husband and many animal companions in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.
