Description
Night is coming and small things without words are going to sleep . . . sleepy bunnies, sleepy birds, and sleepy children, too, are getting under their covers. "Jean Charlot's illustrations are first-rate." NYT. Barbara Bader called this 1943 book, now restored to its original size and format, "the first of the true bedtime books."

1944 Caldecott Honor Book.
