I love this headstrong girl, not sleepy, not going to bed. No way. Her smart guardians get her ready and then take her on a journey of all the animals around her room who go to sleep in the wild. The lovely drawings are enhanced by lyrical prose: "Tiny snails?" she asked. "They curl up like a cinnamon roll inside their shell." AAaaaaaah. I wish someone would read this to me at bedtime. Sweet dreams!

— Susan


In a lyrical bedtime book with echoes of Run Away Bunny cadence, the fresh look of two-time Caldecott Honoree Pamela Zagarenski's luminous illustrations paired with Mary Logue's poetic language frame the very simple-sounding question: does everything in the world go to sleep? This Caldecott Honor book is certain to give you peaceful dreams! Now in lap board book. 

Does everything in the world go to sleep? In a sincere, poetic, and imaginative dialogue between a not-so-sleepy child and understanding parents, the little girl decides “in a cocoon of sheets, a nest of blankets,” she is ready to sleep, warm and strong, just like a tiger. Two-time Caldecott Honor medalist Pamela Zagarenski’s rich, luminous mixed-media paintings effervesce with charming details that nonsleepy children could examine for hours. Winner of the Caldecott Honor, this rare gem is now in lap board book format.
