How Does Sleep Come lulls little ones to sleep

When it's time to put your baby to sleep, do you often turn to the tried-and-true staples? You know what I'm talking about... Time for Bed, Goodnight Moon, or the Very Hungry Caterpillar. I love these just as much as the next Mom, but I was excited to discover HOW DOES SLEEP COME by Jeanne C. Blackmore that was published in September.

In her picture book debut, Jeanne Blackmore creates the perfect soothing atmosphere for your little one to fall asleep. A mother is putting her son to bed when he asks, "How does sleep come?" Jacob's mom tucks him in and goes on to describe how sleep is like snowfall, a fog, a cloud, a cat and more.

“Sleep comes quietly. Like a snowfall that blankets a meadow on a dark starry night, and lays down a soft white canvas for rabbits to leave footprints.”

The text is beautiful and calming to read, just what you need to set the mood for nighttime. The illustrations also have a magical way of capturing that same calm and provide an amazing backdrop for any child to quietly, silently, softly, peacefully, and gently fall asleep. A must have for any new baby!
