Written by Eric Metaxas, Illustrated by Nancy Tillman
This sweet, rhyming verse lulls everyone to sleep as one by one the mothers of forest, field, water and air softly tell their children, “It’s time to sleep.”
This very beautiful book has been loved by our grandchildren and their parents. Its soothing story is perfectly mirrored in Nancy Tillman’s luminous paintings, setting exactly the right mood for bedtime.
“It’s time to sleep, it’s time to sleep,”
the fishes croon in waters deep.
The songbirds sing in trees above,
“It’s time to sleep, my love, my love.”
“It’s time to sleep, my love.”
For young children and those who love them.
