A lovely book to read before bedtime! It gives children the vision of all things that are still going on in the world while you are sleeping throughout the night in your bed.
While You’re Sleeping by Mick Jackson and illustrated by John Broadley
“There’s a whole world of activity out there while we’re asleep in our beds, from bakers preparing bread and cakes and firefighters waiting patiently for a call, to hospitals caring for those who are ill and postal workers sorting our mail. There is also wildlife such as foxes foraging, bats flying, and owls hunting for prey. And around the world there are children who are playing, learning, eating, and reading while we’re tucked up asleep.”
Perfect for bedtime, this book opens up a whole world of wonder and imagination for children and provides solace if they wake in the early hours. In his first children’s book, illustrator John Broadley works in a limited palette, moving from soft dusk colors to warm dawn tones.
Recommended for kids whose ages are 4-8
