* "Children around the world go to sleep in different beds in this ingeniously illustrated picture book...Read this before bedtime to ensure a world of sweet dreams."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Delightful rhymes and charming hand-stitched art celebrate the many ways we sleep across the world. Perfect for a baby shower gift and for fans of This Is How We Do It.

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.

About the Author
Rebecca Bond is the author-illustrator of many books, including Out of the Woods: A True Story of an Unforgettable Event and Escape from Baxter's Barn, a Junior Library Guild Selection and Amazon Editor's Favorite Pick. She grew up in the tiny village of Peacham in northeastern Vermont.

Salley Mavor rediscovered her childhood delight in sewing and creating miniature scenes while studying at RISD. "I found I could communicate ideas more clearly than with pencil or brush, that my hands would direct me in a compelling way." Her innovative bas-relief sculptures appear in the award-winning Pocketful of Posies: A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes, as well as other picture books. She lives on Cape Cod in Massachusetts.
