All the Way to Morning by Marc Harshman, Felipe Dávalos
Listen! What do you hear when you get ready to sleep?
Meli hears the fruit bats squeak, squeak, squeaking . . .
Lekeni hears the jackal yip, yip, yipping . . .
Moshe hears a hammer ping, ping, pinging . . .
Armand hears a violin singing . . .
Fiona hears the waves lapping . . .
Imagine friends from all over the world, children whom you haven’t met, but who are listening, too. From Western Samoa to Kenya, from Israel to Italy to Scotland and more, children are listening to the reassuring sounds that surround them before they drift off to dreamland.
Melodious sounds that children might hear as day turns into night in various places throughout the world are presented in this lyrical go-to-sleep book. Softly hued, gentle paintings depict a young child, thinking of children just like him in far-away places listening . . . softly dreaming . . . as they get ready to fall asleep.
