Wynken, Blynken, & Nod by Eugene Field

Im a sucker for this rhyme ever since I remember that Mrs. Wilson had memorized it in the Dennis the Menace movie and it was kind of her way of showing how sad she was over never having children (if I remember right). I was impressed because memorization has never been my strong suit and it showed deep yearning in her soul. Ok, Im done being melodramatic.

I love the art in this book and the story goes beyond the short version of the rhyme that we all know. In the end it even explains what Wynken, Blynken and Nod are, which Id never heard before. Something about reading it makes it seem as if you are sailing, or at least rocking back and forth which makes it an exceptional bedtime story. This one got a read this book again?, which always means its a winner to me.
