About this book 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.
Reviews from Around the World 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!"— Lowell King, Amazon
"When I read this to my son/daughter, I like to make the sounds of the different animals. I also point out where the little owl is hidden on every page. She is still in utero, but I nevertheless feel like this is a worthwhile activity.
LOOK IT IS BEING CUDDLED BY THE TWO PENGUINS! THERE IT IS FLYING OVER THE WHALE IN THE OCEAN! NOW IT IS ON A WIRE WITH THOSE OTHER BIRDS*!
The art is simultaneously classic and modern and I'm pretty sure no child will appreciate it on as many levels as I do."— J, Goodreads
