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!
