An ABC Book for Picture Book Month

How many ABC books can you purchase for your child? If it’s well done, there’s always room for one more. All the Awake Animals Are Almost Asleep is one to add to your collection. In this alphabetical book, author, Crescent Dragonwagon, and illustrator, David McPhail, create a serene setting for lulling a child to sleep. Who knew wild animals could be so calming?

Crescent Dragonwagon uses a combination of rhyme and alliteration to create a world of well-known and some not so well-known animals that are ready to settle down to sleep. David McPhail’s watercolor and ink illustrations are soft and soothing to the eye and compliment the lyrical text that sets the stage for sleepy time.

This is a perfect book to share with your child who may not be quite ready to settle down for the night.
