A Book of Sleep by Il Sung Na

With a spare soothing text and beautifully rich and textured illustrations of a starry night, this is the perfect "book of sleep".  Join the owl on his moonlit journey as he watches all the other animals settle in for the night: some sleep standing up, while some sleep on the move!  Some sleep peacefully alone, while others sleep all together, huddled close.

Tell Me the Day Backwards by Albert Lamb

Just before going to bed, Timmy Bear and his mama play a game they call Tell Me the Day Backwards.  Timmy tries to remember everything that happened to him that day in reverse, from watching the sunset on the hill to the picnic supper before that, from being chased by bees to finding honey in an old tree stump, all the way back to waking up that morning from his winter-long hibernation.  This charming bedtime story is sure to have parents and children sharing their own day - backwards - with each other.
