Summary

Summary

Somewhere a bee Makes a bed in a rose, Because the bee knows Day has come to a close. "Nighttime blankets a little farm. An owl who-hoots. A bear curls up in a log. A mother fox calls her pups home to the den. But animals aren't the only ones preparing to rest. In the tradition of Margaret Wise Brown, with classically styled picture book illustrations and fresh, childlike imagery, this poetic bedtime book, as peaceful as it is warm, will wrap young ones in the comforts of routine. All is well, it reminds them. Now is the time for dreams. * "Repeated, pleasingly surreal lines of verse convey the sense of drifting into slumber...a keeper." --"Publishers Weekly", starred review "A quiet book for sharing in a cozy setting.""--School Library Journal
