A tired little one is lured to sleep while his mother explains how all the animals have a time to wake and time to sleep.

'Every creature, tame and wild,
Has night and day, has still and leap,
Has wide awake and sound asleep.

The animals and their sleeping habits are introduced alphabetically. The illustrations by David McPhail are clear and beautiful. His animals are easy to recognize at a time when many children's books are so artistic that the accompanying pictures are hard to understand.

Crescent Dragonwagon has written a lovely alphabet and go to sleep book. The alphabetical animals make a great daytime read while the soothing poetry will ease little ones to sleep at night. This is a book that will be fun to read again and again and has already become one of my favorites.
