Close Your Eyes by Kate Banks, Georg Hallensleben

A little tiger takes an imaginative journey.

The little tiger lay on his back in the tall grass.
"Close your eyes, little tiger,' said his mother, "and go to sleep."

But the little tiger is worried about what sleep might bring. His mother reassures him that once he closes his eyes, he will dream of magical places. And when he awakens, she will be right there, waiting for him.

Alternating between real-life scenes with the baby tiger and his mother and enchanted dream scenes of sleep's possibilities, Kate Banks's simple, comforting text and Georg Hallensleben's bright, colorful illustrations make this a charming bedtime story for small children.

Kate Banks and Georg Hallensleben are the author and artist of And If the Moon Could Talk, winner of the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award, The Night Worker, winner of the Charlotte Zolotow Award, and A Gift from the Sea. Ms. Banks lives in Menton, France, and Mr. Hallensleben lives in Paris, France.

I LOVE this book, and so does my friend's kid. It is sweet, with lots of different kinds of animals. I appreciate the water-color like drawings, and the learning of how different animals sleep. I have purchased three more for my friends' new babies.

This book is very imaginative. It also is a help when it comes to talking about dreams with your child. The colors are very bright as well. I enjoy this book even after I have read it at least three times to my three year old every night that she thinks of it!
