Book of the Day by Mrs. Mattei

I love to sleep. Don't you?? In today's book of the day a little girl is desperately trying to avoid going to sleep. To help her fall asleep, she wonders if all things go to sleep at night. It's a beautiful book written by Mary Logue and earned the Randolf Caldecott Honor Award in 2013. Please check this book out! Happy reading! :)

In this magical bedtime story, the lyrical narrative echoes a Runaway Bunny – like cadence: Does everything in the world go to sleep? the little girl asks. In sincere and imaginative dialogue between a not-at-all 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. The Caldecott Honor artist Pamela Zagarenski’s rich, luminous mixed-media paintings effervesce with odd, charming details that nonsleepy children could examine for hours. A rare gem.
