Wynken, Blynken, and Nod

Wynken, Blyken, and Nod
By Eugene W. Field
Illustrated by David McPhail
Scholastic/CartWheel Books
Board book release November 2009

WYNKEN, BLYNKEN, AND NOD take children on a magical journey into the night sky where three fishermen sail in a wooden shoe, capturing the stars in nets of silver and gold and laughing with the moon. And when the nighttime adventure comes to an end, the wooden shoe brings the fishermen home to the real world of a child fast asleep.With soft illustrations and rhythmic rhyme, this lullaby poem will help energetic toddlers settle down and have sweet dreams as they snuggle into their beds.

This is a great retelling of the timeless nursery rhythm.
My children enjoy this story and love the great illustrations that capture the adventure of Wynken, Blyken, and Nod's bunny adventure as they sail off in a wooden shoe.

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
