Description

In this sweet rhyming picture book, a mother prepares her daughter for bed by telling her about the different animals that live nearby and their nighttime activities. The mother's narrative comes full circle from night to dawn, and the little girl is lulled to sleep dreaming about her animal friends.
Lyrical writing and warm illustrations from the bestselling author-illustrator team of Rose A. Lewis and Jen Corace make this a perfect bedtime book.

Praise for Sweet Dreams
" A pretty...bedtime story."
--Kirkus Reviews

"As a lullaby should, this book has soothing language and illustrations in comforting colors. The rhymes are sweet and satisfying when read aloud. This is a lovely book that any parent or grandparent would enjoy sharing."
-School Library Journal

"Sweet Dreams captures the essence of the genre. The writing is light and benevolent, the drawings both familiar and fresh."
--Wall Street Journal

"The text forms the scaffolding for Corace's elegant spreads, in which distinctively stylized, sharp-cornered figures are muted by a twilight palette."
--Publishers Weekly
