In a soothing, lyrical style, author Natalee Creech sends readers off towards dreamland with this beautifully illustrated book. With gentle humor and warm watercolors that complement the text, this is a perfect pre-bedtime read that will help make getting ready for bed a soothing yet fun.

Day is done. Gone the sun. And what does every child do? Why they say goodnight to friends, family, pets, and even Mother Nature. And extra bonuses are the discussions that each illustration and verse can stimulate – the sun’s heat, the moon’s light, the garden’s needs, and oral hygiene. The family bond is a strong theme in this story. Creech’s gentle poetry verses combined with Dunn’s lovely pastel illustrations give the reader a sense of calm and peacefulness that makes this a perfect bedtime story choice.

Beautifully written, this gentle story takes the reader through the nighttime routines of several different families. Young readers will relate to the children in the book and will be delighted by the animals and toys. The refrain, "We sleep when day is done," is repeated throughout. Robert Dunn's soft illustrations add to the calming feel of the story. When Day is Done is a perfect book to read at bedtime.

When Day Is Done is a beautiful way to close each day. Not only is the language lyrical, soothing and peaceful, but readers of every age are reminded of the beauty in the world around us that needs sleep too. Author Natalee Creech, takes us on a journey we need to pay attention to more often. Life today is so hectic and busy, we forget the quiet moments that help lull us into deep peace and tranquility. This beautifully illustrated picture book is for readers of every age. Children are learning to embrace these amazing moments and adults sometimes need reminders that the beauty our world has needs nurturing too.

The gentle, rhythmic ebb and flow of Creech's text will lull your little one to sleep, and Dunn's lovely illustrations will show the reader how various families enjoy their days and prepare for bed. This is a book that your child will want you to read repeatedly, and guess what? This book is so soothing that you won't mind reading it over and over again! You'll both enjoy curling up and resting as you remind your child to sleep when day is done.
