Synopsis

As the sun sets, a father puts his child to bed. Weaving images of mice, of birds, and of polar bears, he tells her that sleep nibbles the last crumb of day; sleep gathers her beneath its feathery wings; and that sleep holds her tight in the furry dark. And as the images of sleep grow larger and larger, the father hopes that sleep will come to his child very soon.
In this glorious companion to If You Were Born a Kitten, Marion Dane Bauer and JoEllen McAllister Stammen have created a classic lullaby, as warm and loving as any child and parent at bedtime.

Rather than describing how nature's inhabitants sleep, here sleep itself is personified via an array of animals: as a bird, when ""Sleep gathers you beneath its feathery wings,"" and as a lamb that ""grazes softly around your bed."" The images ease readers and listeners from a visual world into a...
