    ★ "In OHora’s sweet and funny acrylic art.... The childlike approach, appealing art, and relatable worm character...connect story and audience." —The Horn Book, STARRED review 

     

    "Featuring vibrant illustrations, lively rhymes, and playful touches.... This artful take on familiar nighttime routines is ​an enjoyable blend of whimsical, cozy, and sweet." —Booklist 

     

    "[S]teady rhythm, whimsical rhymes, abundant alliteration, and hand-lettered sleep-appropriate sounds to share like "zzzzz" and "snore! snore!" extend the read-aloud experience. A bedtime veggie feast for the eyes and ears." —Kirkus​ 

     

    "[S]nuggled-in vegetables and sweet, lilting text offer an effectively snoozy bedtime rhyme." —Publishers Weekly 

     

    "The guide through this food-focused bedtime tale is a jauntily capped earthworm.... The playful rhymes poke around with some puns (the beets are simply beat, cabbages nod their sleepy heads, and cranky cornstalks cover their ears), and while this is perfectly suited for reading aloud, the simple text, solid rhythm, and effective alliteration put this in the reach of beginning readers as well.... Even the most veggie-averse kid will appreciate this cute bunch of crudités." —​The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
