Mama, ich kann nicht schlafen

Mummy, I Can’t Sleep

What’s the best way to sleep? Upside down, on one leg or in your own bed?

When the little girl simply cannot fall asleep, her mother tells her how each of the animals go to sleep: the leopard in a tree, the bat hanging upside down, the stork on one leg and the fish even does it with its eyes open. But what’s the best way for children to go to sleep? Perhaps it would help to if they simply tried it out? Or is your own bed the best place after all?

-\x09A delightful goodnight book from the picture-book dream team Raab and Olten
-\x09Original, amusing and brimming with animal knowledge!
