Cover of Rainbow Nights by Sally M. Harris
March is Small Press Month, so throughout the month, I'll be highlighting books from small presses.
In Rainbow Nights, a little girl ends her day and lays her head to rest. But Dreamland awaits and "Dreamland's like a vacation. Every night's a celebration."
The little girl finds there are so many things to do in dreamland-- you can use your imagination to raise honey bees, plant a patch of perfect peas, ride a rocket ship, or fly to the nearest star. She finds Dreamland's busy with swirling colors and flashing lights, tuba music and rainbow nights.
So she closes her eyes and dreams pleasant dreams because soon she'll wake to greet the sun.
The rhyming text makes this a beautiful read-aloud for bed. Children will be excited to drift off into their own dreamland as they experience the vivid colors and wild imagination of Rainbow Nights.
