A comforting bedtime read.

The Forest Sleeps - Calee M. Lee, Erin Kenna

A beautifully illustrated book for very young children that helps them to unwind at bedtime. The repetition of the phrase 'sleep tight' is perfect for young audiences. The animals are a mixture of the familiar (snakes, rabbits, birds) and the less familiar (deer, beavers, fireflies) which helps children add to their knowledge of the wild.

I read this to my 20 month granddaughter and she loved it. She also loves that it's on my Kindle Fire (and therefore in colour) and that she can share something on this device that she knows I value. She enjoyed turning the pages for herself and exclaiming at each animal, often with their young.

Now that I have grandchildren I can discover a whole world of new children's books :)
