The stand-out feature of this charming children's picture book is the beautiful, poetic language. That makes it a great choice to use with students learning how to write poetry. Gentle imagery is well-supported by the choice of words, and there's lots of alliteration for young poets to find.
This book is illustrated by Michelle Dawson and her delicate, dreamy sketches with muted colours depict baby animals from all over the world settling down to sleep. Each page shows a new baby animal in its special environment, accompanied by a loving parent.
