The three hand-size volumes Animal Crackers: Bedtime; Animal Crackers: Nursery Rhymes; and Animal Crackers: Animal Friends are excerpted from her Animal Crackers: A Delectable Collection of Pictures, Poems and Lullabies for the Very Young, which PW said, in a starred review, has ""the power to entice youngest children to cherish the richness and diversity of both language and art.""
