    The best book I've ever read, and the pictures are great.This book is not just a children's book... it will draw you into it's spell and you'll want to look at it again and again and again.

    Atypically for me I read these backwards (not that it matters one whit with these particular books) and read If You're Afraid of the Dark Add One More Star to the Night first and while I usually am not enamored of these types of books, I really liked that one and liked this one.The illustrations are lovely. The sayings fold into one another in a lovely way, noe leading the way to the next. The sayings in this book, overall, didn’t touch me quite as much as in the other book, but though I tend to be derisive about pop psych, inspirational, and other such books, I found this one to be sweet and thought provoking. Not as good as its sequel though, at least not for me. Thought I read it first, I love that I liked this author’s second such book better than the first book; that doesn’t typically happen. The illustrations in both these books are terrific.

    HOLY CATS YOU GUYS.I've been looking for this book since the early 90s. I babysat for a family that had this, but all I could remember about it was "it had weird 70s pictures, one of which showed someone wearing a lightbulb as a necklace" and "it had the story structure 'if you're something, then something'."So of course I could never find it and was starting to think it didn't exist, or was some weird self-published Montana thing. It remained a mystery, until today. Today I found it sitting on the desk in the Friends of the Library bookstore, a $2 pricetag slapped on it.$2 is a small price to pay for solving this long lost mystery, I say!

    "If you lose a memory...embroider a new one to take its place." —If You're Afraid of the Dark, Remember the Night Rainbow The illustrations and quiet importance of this book (particularly the former element) scared me some when I was very, very small, but there is a lot of good in the story, and it certainly has more depth than most such picture books. " If You're Afraid of the Dark, Remember the Night Rainbow" is a thought-provoking read. "If there is no happy ending...make one out of cookie dough." —If You're Afraid of the Dark, Remember the Night Rainbow

    One could just as well rip out the drawings and put them on the dorm room wall of any student indulging in the arts, psychedelia, or philosophy. I love the strands of art nouveau threaded through the psychedelic fantasia reminiscent of many different eras; from the Victorian Alice in Wonderland-type madness to 1930's smoky jazz club surrealism to the 1960's and 70's rainbow celebration of inner-child imagination as seen in Yellow Submarine and Sesame Street.The words fall into a poem suitable for all ages - not in a cloying, fun-for-the-whole-family, packaged sort of way, but in that children, teenagers, and adults will all appreciate it, albeit differently. It narrowly avoids sounding too self-helpish, and makes me hungry for strawberries.

    I read this to my 7, 4.5, 3, and 1 year old. The illustrations were enjoyed by all but the what to do whens the children came up with as we read each page were far more entertaining, almost as whimsical, and usually more actionable than those offered in the book. I should have written them down. Overall not one of our favorites.

    This book began toning my imagination muscles before I can remember. I know it by heart. Whitman says that once a being is all the way enlightened, his or her very flesh becomes a poem. I think my flesh will become this poem when I achieve nirvana.

    This book is a constant reminder for me about the perspective on life I want to keep. There is virtually always a way to find something good in the world or in a situation, we just need to look for it.

    This is my favorite book. I have been reading it since childhood and it has inspired countless hours of dreaming and delight! There is a follow-up to this story that is also amazing. The drawings and text are just lovely.

    This is a new favourite of mine. I love the turning-lemons-into-lemonade message, but also the simplicity. A lovely poem with delicate illustrations."If you have butterflies in your stomachask them into your heart."

    A few nights before my wedding I was having a hard time falling asleep. I read this book (ironically given to me by an ex-boyfriend's mother) and it helped. Thanks MJ!

    I like some of the poems/lyrics a lot and others make no sense. again some of the pictures are inspired, and some don't match the words that well. I really like the idea though.

    These are whimsical, magical and beloved by all my children and grandchildren. We took the author's advice and tattooed stars on our toes to find our way home.

    Another de rigeur title in the milk crate that was the '70s camp counselor library. Great imagery accompanies (or maybe 'drives' is a better word) the aphoristic text.

    This is still one of my favourite children's books. The illustrations in it are immaculate and really could work as pieces of art.
