Night Play illuminates a truth we all once knew - that our stuffed animals do not go to sleep just because we do. Arlo might be sleepy, but his friends are determined to go “on with the show” and finish the play. The illustrations, on die-cut pages that fold out like stage curtains, are vivid and lively, and the simple prose gently inspires cooperation. The result is absolutely delightful.
A Name for Baby is the charming story of a mother mouse finding the perfect name for her baby mouse. With lyrical wordplay that makes it a joy to read aloud and magical, playful illustrations that bring the woodland creatures and the moon into the story, the whole experience is a pleasure.
“Boyd's writing is lyrical, reflecting the joy of a new child while also conveying the tranquility of nature” -- School Library Journal
