(synopsis from Goodreads)

I haven't read a Gyo Fujikawa title in decades! I know I had a few of her books when I was little. I don't recall this one, though. It's really cute, a simple bedtime book that shows adorable children getting ready for bed. It also shows how a few animals sleep.

I can see this being a bedtime favourite for winding down after a long day. The pictures are relaxing to look at, and the text isn't too overwhelming.

Overall, this is a lovely bedtime book for young children.
