    Somewhere a bee 

    Makes a bed in a rose, 

    Because the bee knows 

    Day has come to a close.  


    Nighttime blankets a little farm. An owl who-hoots. A bear curls up in a log. A mother fox calls her pups home to the den. But animals aren’t the only ones preparing to rest.

    In the tradition of Margaret Wise Brown, with classically styled picture book illustrations and fresh, childlike imagery, this poetic bedtime book, as peaceful as it is warm, will wrap young ones in the comforts of routine. Soft covers, rounded corners, and sturdy board book pages make this padded edition the perfect bedtime companion. Now is the time for dreams.

    * "Repeated, pleasingly surreal lines of verse convey the sense of drifting into slumber...a keeper." 

    Publishers Weekly, starred review


    "A quiet book for sharing in a cozy setting."

    —School Library Journal 


    "The blue-hued mixed-media illustrations soothingly depict a farm as it moves from dusk to night and bring a hush to the book—and no doubt its readers as well."
