Wynken, Blynken, and Nod (Barbara Cooney)

Wynken, Blynken, and Nod by Eugene Field, illustrated by Barbara Cooney.
Hastings House, 1964.

As I mentioned last week, I recently checked out two Barbara Cooney poetry picture books from the library. The other is the beautiful Wynken, Blynken and Nod.

This one is printed on thick textured paper. I'm betting a non-library copy in good condition must be gorgeous!

I have loved this poem ever since my brother was a baby. My mother had a Disney lullaby cassette, and the Lucy Simon musical setting was my favorite on the tape. More blog posts referencing the poem may be found here.  I also have a Pinterest board, because of course I do.

  1. Absolutely dreamy! Hadn't seen this edition illustrated by Barbara Cooney!

    1. The pictures don't do it justice. The thick textured paper make it even dreamier.

  2. So beautiful! I love this poem too!


Comments are welcome! I'm a shy blog commenter, too, but I do love to read what people have to say. All I ask is, please be kind, to me and to each other.
