Bedtime for Sweet Creatures by Nikki Grimes
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.
