My bed rocks on water

My bed sways in the breeze.

My bed’s beneath a curtain

My bed’s aloft in trees . . .

In the Netherlands, some beds rock on water. In Brazil they might sway in the breeze. From Canada to Japan, Afghanistan to Norway, sleep has taken many forms and shapes throughout history. Astonishing, hand-stitched illustrations and a delightful narrative tell the story of sleeping traditions across the world.

    ★ "Children around the globe go to sleep in different kinds of beds in this ingeniously illustrated picture book.... All readers will want to return to pore over the details of these imaginative depictions.... A concluding note about the creation of the illustrations will be fascinating to adults and may prompt them to work with children to make some fabric collages. Read this before bedtime to ensure a world of sweet dreams." —Kirkus, STARRED review
