Wynken, Blynken, and Nod

Eugene W. Field

Entirely charming illustrations by David McPhail

Board Book

Complete unabridged text of Field's classic bedtime poem


Wynken, Blynken and Nod one night
Sailed off in a wooden shoe –
Sailed on a river of crystal light,
Into a sea of dew.

So begins this beloved lullaby poem, so beautiful and so certain to sooth children (and their parents!) off into peaceful dreams on a smooth sea.  In this edition, we are treated to the complete text of this luminous poem and illustrations that simply warm the heart.  Here Wynken, Blynken and Nod are dear rabbits come to fish the starry seas, returning to sprinkle their sparkling catch over a child’s bed, a covering of soft sleep.

For children of all ages.  Very highly recommended.
