Bedtime for Sweet Creatures
  • Bedtime for Sweet Creatures

    4 Starred Reviews! Nikki Grimes, Coretta Scott King Award winning author, and illustrator Elizabeth Zunon's latest children's masterpiece creates an imagination-fueled journey to bedtime.

    Your bookshelf is noisy with stories.
    "Which one?" I ask.
    You point, frozen like a fawn
    until you hear "Once upon a time."

    It's bedtime, but Mommy's little boy is not sleepy.

    He growls like a bear, he questions like an owl, he tosses his mane like a lion. He hunts for water like a sly wolf, and hides like a snake.

    Mommy needs to wrangle her sweet creature in bed so that the whole family can sleep.
