It’s Time to Sleep, My Love by Nancy Tillman and Eric Metaxas
Sleep has been a major focus for our family lately. E has been having some sleep problems ever since he reached toddlerhood. So, we’ve been on the hunt for books that are soothing and talk about sleeping. We found a great addition to our collection which is E’s Pick of the Week - “It’s Time to Sleep, My Love”. This book is absolutely gorgeous and the rhythm of the text is very soothing. E just loves to cuddle up and listen to us reading it in a calming voice. He adores all the animals saying good night to their babies. The depth of the images really allows him to visually explore the image while listening to us reading.
Breathtaking artwork and a soothing melody make this book a valuable and pleasant one to add to any night time routine. I know that E is happy we got a copy and I think your little one will enjoy it too!
“It’s Time to Sleep, My Love” is published by Feiwel & Friends (a Macmillan imprint). It is available in hardcover or board book form.
