Putting the World to Sleep

Each stanza in this gentle lullaby introduces another detail to the picture – a big dog drowsing by the fire in an old brown house, a mother humming, a baby yawning. And as the moon climbs over the mountain, one little girl goes to sleep. Goodnight world.
Children will delight in the way common elements of everyday life combine in graceful verse and lovely pictures to make a bedtime book.
