Carole Lexa Schaefer says DOWN IN THE WOODS AT SLEEPYTIME was inspired "by all my friends at Little Friends Preschool who like to play just a little bit longer—even at sleepytime."Vanessa Cabban says, "I wanted to suggest that bedtime can be the best time of day—by creating pictures that make children feel safe and warm, helping them drift from the excitement of play to the coziness of their beds."
