The Sun's Asleep Behind the Hill

Front Cover
Perfection Learning Corporation, 2000 - Juvenile Fiction
When the sun goes down for the night, all the creatures in the natural world know it's time to rest. The breeze grows still, the leaves stop shaking, and the bird and squirrel return to their nests. Even an active little boy finally grows tired after a long day of play. It is time for bed. Caldecott Award winner Paul O. Zelinsky illustrates this bedtime story adapted from an Armenian song. The repetitive, rhyming text, and the slowly darkening pictures, gently lull a child to sleep.
