A Book of Sleep: Il Sung Na

Here's a shout out for a picture book to board book conversion! I love this new edition of A Book of Sleep.

Il Sung Na's simple text combined with fresh, original art will captivate your totz. Nothing is cuter than the wide-eyed owl watching everyone sleep through the night. Some sleep quietly, others make noise, while some sleep on the move.

The layers of texture combined with flower patterns and whimsical little sketches delight and engage. Knopf nailed the right format by bringing this work to little hands. Bravo! Starred reviews from Booklist, PW, and School Library Journal are well deserved.
