by Ted Scheu, Pete Gergely (Illustrations)
Ted Scheu's gently rolling rhymes combine with Pete Gergely's smilingly delicious watercolors to take you and your tired body parts on a very sleepy trip around the world, ending in the inner-outer space of dreamland, whether you like it or not. Say Night-night to all your body parts, from toes to top, and travel to fifteen different countries as you do.
I LOVED this book. This was one of the truest examples of a great children’s book I have received. The watercolors are fantastic and remind me so much of books I read as a child. I love all the different illustrations of children going to sleep all over the world. It just makes you think about how much diversity there is in the world. The story reminded me of my highschool gym class when we had a yoga unit. We would do meditation while the teacher would tell us to close our eyes and picture each body part one by one and try to feel nothing. Slowly our feet would be gone, then our legs, then our arms, shoulders… It truly works, as I did fall asleep in class. If you read this book nice and slow and have your kids do the same thing, they should be able to fall asleep. The quality of the book is amazing. The hardcover is great, the sleeve illustrations are something you’d see in a bookstore window. Just a perfect book to get for a younger child for bedtime.
