Amazon Description:

My little one, lay down your head.

It’s time to doze, it’s time for bed.
You tell me, “I’m not sleepy now.”
“Just try,” I say. You ask me, “How?”

In this lyrical animal ABC book, a mother tries to tuck her child in for the night by telling him about all the awake animals that are getting sleepy. From antlered Antelope to zzz-ing Zebra, this alphabet of animals becomes an exquisite celebration of language and nature, just right for lulling even the most wide-awake little ones into a cozy, soothing slumber.
