(HMH Books for Young Readers, Jan. 15, 2019)
In a lyrical bedtime book with echoes of Run Away Bunny cadence, the fresh look of two-time Caldecott Honoree Pamela Zagarenski's luminous illustrations paired with Mary Logue's poetic language frame the very simple-sounding question: does everything in the world go to sleep? This Caldecott Honor book is certain to give you peaceful dreams! Now in lap board book. Does everything in the world go to sleep? In a sincere, poetic, and imaginative dialogue between a not-so-sleepy child and understanding parents, the little girl decides “in a cocoon of sheets, a nest of blankets,” she is ready to sleep, warm and strong, just like a tiger. Two-time Caldecott Honor medalist Pamela Zagarenski’s rich, luminous mixed-media paintings effervesce with charming details that nonsleepy children could examine for hours. Winner of the Caldecott Honor, this rare gem is now in lap board book format.
