Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The basilisk falls asleep balanced on a thin branch that hangs ocer the water.

To stay safe from predators, the flamingo sleeps standing in shallow water.

The white stork sleeps in flight!

Time to Sleep is one of three in a picture book series for very young children by Caldecott-Honor winning duo Steve Jenkins and Robin Page. Jenkins' masterful and vibrantly colored cut-and-torn paper illustrations paired with a fun, lovely text, Time to Sleep showcases the most interesting ways animals go to sleep.

Synopsis:

Like children who must go to bed for the night, the forest animals each find a way to put off bedtime just a little bit longer. Full color.

Synopsis:

A warm, inviting bedtime book from a Caldecott winning illustrator.

Bear sniffed once.

She sniffed twice.

"I smell winter in the air," said Bear. "It is time to crawl into my cave and sleep. But first I must tell Snail."

But, like children who must go to bed for the night, they each find a way to put it off just a little bit longer. Richly illustrated in fall colors, Denise Fleming's story book world is right on target for preschoolers.
