Bedtime for Sweet Creatures
by Nikki Grimes, Pictures by Elizabeth Zunon
This sweet, beautifully illustrated story imagines the ordinary routine of bedtime as an animal-filled journey. When the red-pajama clad child isn't sleepy, they delay bedtime by growling like a bear, questioning like an owl and hunting for water like a sly wolf. From tigers, to squirrels, to snakes, the little child dodges around bedtime until they are finally tired enough to sleep, curling up for the night with their imaginative animal friends.
