Bedtime for Sweet Creatures

Nikki Grimes, Coretta Scott King Award winning author, and illustrator Elizabeth Zunon’s latest children’s masterpiece creates an imagination-fueled journey to bedtime 

Your bookshelf is noisy with stories.
"Which one?" I ask.
You point, frozen like a fawn
until you hear "Once upon a time."

It's bedtime, but Mommy's little boy is not sleepy.

He growls like a bear, he questions like an owl, he tosses his mane like a lion. He hunts for water like a sly wolf, and hides like a snake.

Mommy needs to wrangle her sweet creature in bed so that the whole family can sleep.
