A Book of Sleep by Il Sung Na

A Book of Sleep by Il Sung Na is a gorgeous picture book that is perfect for any sleepy child. The story is a simple one about animals going to sleep at night and an owl that doesn’t sleep at all during the night. The illustrations are fantastic. Dark colors contrast with bright colors in a perfect way. Also the textures and patterns within the pictures are beautiful. The illustrations are so wonderful that I don’t think any words are even needed. This is one of my favorites this year and definitely worth checking out!

I second the recommendation on this book! Lovely, dreamy, and unique, the painterly illustrations just charmed the socks right off me! Just gorgeous.
