Babies yawning, babies bathing, babies sweetly slumbering: day is done and it's time for bed, in this brand new board edition of Gyo Fujikawa's classic book. Fujikawa's gorgeous illustrations contrast the children's nighttime rituals with the horse that sleeps standing up, the lazy sloth that snoozes upside down, and animals that doze the winter away.
 Parents and children will find this book a lovely way to say “good night.”
