My little one, lay down your head.It's time to doze, it's time for bed.You tell me, "I'm not sleepy now.""Just try," I say. You ask me, "How?"

What an absolutely splendid book for nap time or bed time. The book is both a lullaby and and an animal alphabet book! Lovely lyrical poetry adds to the tenderness of each page. Read full review
