Charlotte Zolotow's 1958 text conjures all the ways animals wind down for the night in The Sleepy Book: from ""pigeons [that]/ sleep/ in/ a row/ pressing/ against/ each other/ for/ warmth"" to ""little boys/ and girls [who]/ .../ sleep/ warm under/ their blankets/ in their/ beds."" Stefano Vitale's subdued, soothing colors painted on wood add a cozy, twilight backdrop to the poet's timeless text. (Aug.)
