"Where did you get those eyes so blue? / Out of the sky as I came through." In this adaptation of an 1895 poem by Scottish fairytale novelist George McDonald, for prereaders and also for their caregivers, babies are followed from heaven to earth, where they nestle in the arms of their families. The illustrator of Time for Bed, Wee Rhymes, and Animal Crackers, Jane Dyer employs lush colored pencils to depict the cherubs descending among the clouds in shades of blue and gold, while her drawings of sleepy newborns and tots from around the world appear in rosy hues full of warmth and coziness.
