Children sleep. Grown-ups sleep. Animals sleep. And the seasons of the year sleep too.

Soon You'll Be Sleeping is a goodnight book about nature's seasons as they sleep and awaken, sleep and awaken through the year. Children listening and reading will be lulled by the rhymes and the whimsical pictures of nature's dreamy beauty.

Spring sleeps in wintertime, beneath the frozen snow, Among the roots and seeds and tiny things that grow. Spring dreams of bugs and spiders creeping on the grass Of tadpoles swiftly swimming and buds that open fast. Of bees that flit from bloom to bloom, all day without a pause, Of ladybugs and brooks that babble as the cold ice thaws.

Spring is up and leaping now, so happy in the sun. The world has come alive, the transformation has begun.

Spring wakes up after winter. This is always true. But in the springtime summer sleeps. Soon you'll be sleeping too.

Soon You'll Be Sleeping has been lauded for its wonderfully rendered illustrations and the lyrical beauty of the text, which link the memories and experiences of each season. It's a shimmering goodnight book for all sleepyheads.
