Time for Bed

Petr Horacek. Candlewick, $7.99 (16p) ISBN 978-0-7636-6779-5
With his characteristically bright palette, Horacek combines pencil, paint, and collage to walk readers through the steps leading up to a boy’s bedtime. Wooden blocks sit on the floor in the opening spread (“Time to play”); on the following pages, they join other toys in a box (“Time to put away my toys”). As readers move through eating, washing up, and teeth-brushing, graduated pages die-cut with gently curving edges combine to create a quilt of many colors for the sleeping boy on the final spread. A well-structured and eminently cozy bedtime read. Up to age 3. (Sept.)
