While You Sleep

We rated this book:


It is the end of the day and time for bed. A little girl is being tucked into bed along with all her stuffed bunnies by her mother. While the little girl sleeps, the bunnies have a lot of work to do. They need to polish the sun, comb the grass, straighten the trees, apply the dots of black-eyed peas, dust butterflies, charge up the rainbows, and much, much more. The night-helpers have many chores to do, but the little girl has only one, and that is to appreciate the world that has been cleaned and polished by the night-helpers just for her.

Author Jennifer Maruno has tapped into childhood imagination to find this cute story of what youngsters might dream of happening while they sleep. She has written it in rhyming couplets, which little ones will like. The illustrations by Miki Sato are simply stunning. She uses a combination of drawing and collage to create wonderful illustrations that have the look of three-dimensional art. The little night-helpers really come to life with this method. She fills the backgrounds with terrific details to keep little eyes busy and engaged.
