    This is a sweet book about animals.  The illustrations are pastel and peaceful.  It's always a long road home when you're away and this rhyme recognizes that.

    Abrams Young Readers sent me a copy of this book to read for review (thank you).  It is being published today.

    Winter is setting in and the animals are getting ready for it.  The birds fly south, the mice gather food and get ready to hunker down.  Even the wolves are catching prey so they can sleep away part of the winter.  There are more animals to visit with in the story.  Despite the wolves, the tone is calm and some of the words repeat so young ones should enjoy the read.  This would make a good bedtime story.  After all, their bed is "home", right?
