2013 Randolph Caldecott Honor Award

In this magical bedtime story, the lyrical narrative echoes a Runaway Bunny and#8211; like cadence: and#8220;Does everything in the world go to sleep?and#8221; the little girl asks. In sincere and imaginative dialogue between a not-at-all sleepy child and understanding parents, the little girl decides and#8220;in a cocoon of sheets, a nest of blankets,and#8221; she is ready to sleep, warm and strong, just like a tiger. The Caldecott Honor artist Pamela Zagarenskiand#8217;s rich, luminous mixed-media paintings effervesce with odd, charming details that nonsleepy children could examine for hours. A rare gem.

Synopsis:

Readers can cuddle up with this classic bedtime story, now in a special padded board book edition. Full color.

Synopsis:

A cozy bed, a snoring granny, a dreaming child, a dozing dog, a snoozing--WAIT! There's a surprise in store, and little ones will want to discover it over and over again. So pull on your sleeping cap and snuggle in for a timeless cumulative tale that's truly like no other. Don and Audrey Wood's beloved picture book has sold more than one and a half million copies. To celebrate its birthday, the original hardcover book now has a fresh new design for both the jacket and interior, and the reproduction of the illustrations has been enhanced to better match the original artwork. A CD is tucked into a sleeve on the inside the front cover. The music, originally produced in 1989, is based on the book and was written and performed by children's musicians Carl and Jennifer Shaylen. The CD begins with a reading of the story and follows with six original songs that are just as fun, jaunty, and sweet as the book itself.

Reminds me of home, when my grand daughter and 2 cats climb into bed with me.
This is an excellent book to use in a family unit. We always talk about who sleeps in bed at your house and what wakes you up at night?
I love love Audrey Wood's books.
