A Book of Sleep by Il Sung Na (Board Book)
When the sky grows dark
and the moon glows bright,
everyone goes to sleep . . .
except for the watchful owl!
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.
Il Sung Na makes his American debut with this gorgeous bedtime offering. While each animal rests in its own special way, little ones will also drift off to a cozy sleep.

"The illustrations in this book are so lovely that the story might just be lost in the looking! Il Sung Na shows various animals in sleep from the view point of an inquisitive, nocturnal owl as he goes about his activities through the night. Your child can see how various animals get ready for bed.
The book features some repetitive dialogue which children love as well as the owl being incorporated into each view of a sleepy animal--as well as learning about sleep habits, your child can play the "find the owl" game.
The book shows how various animals sleep from some birds who sleep with one eye open, to a fish with both and an elephant with both eyes closed. And your child will find that the owl sleeps when the sun comes up!"
"This is one of the most beautifully illustrated books of late. While all of the other animals sleep, whether solo or snuggled with others, the owl stays awake. The story line is simple, but the illustrations are unique, complex and as soothing as a lullaby."
