A Book of Sleep

sleepbook_coverIt is Spring here in Michigan:  the star magnolia is blooming, the lilacs are budding and my first tulips are opening up to the sun. That is why I’m featuring a book on sleep. Yes, sleep! With the daylight hours stretching into evening, it’s hard to get those little ones to bed. Never fear. Read them A Book of Sleep by Il Sung Na. The illustrations are exquisite. An owl wakes up as other animals sleep. When daylight comes, the owl…sleeps.

Simple and elegant, worthy of long contemplations, A Book of Sleep is timeless.

    Our magnolias are beyond the flowering stage, and our lilacs are at the height of their glory. It’s wonderful! My kids go to bed so late (much to my dismay–we’re a family of night owls!) that it’s always dark at their bedtime, but this book sounds like a good one to add to our collection anyway.

  2. That owl is hilarious!! I’ll have to check this one out! Thanks for sharing!
