My little one, lay down your head.
It's time to doze, it's time for bed.
You tell me, ""I'm not sleepy now.""
""Just try,"" I say. You ask me, ""How?""
In this lyrical animal ABC book, a mother tries to tuck her child in for the night by telling him about all the awake animals that are getting sleepy. From antlered Antelope to zzz-ing Zebra, this alphabet of animals becomes an exquisite celebration of language and nature, just right for lulling even the most wide-awake little ones into a cozy, soothing slumber.
