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

Maar, Paul (Author) Geisler, Dagmar (Illustrator)

Children’s compendium: The goodnight book by Paul Maar and Dagmar Geisler!

Do animals really sleep just like people? Some do, but many don’t! The bat uses its feet to hang upside down from the rafters to sleep, the baby rabbits huddle together in their warren, the lamb sleeps in the meadow near its mummy and the calf lies safe and warm in the stable. And where do children dream the sweetest dreams?

Light-hearted rhymes from the masterly Paul Maar and amusing, adorable illustrations from Dagmar Geisler!

Even little animals feel sleepy in the evening.

Conny, the kangaroo has hiccups and just cannot get off to sleep.

And Susi the piglet is wrapped up warm in a blanket of straw because she’s got a temperature. At the end of the story, the baby animals are all asleep – and so are Conny’s hiccups, just like Kitty’s mummy.

When all the Animals Head for Bed is sure to send all young human children happily off to dreamland.
