One Sleepy Night

Sebastien Braun. Tiger Tales, $8.95 (20p) ISBN 978-1-58925-619-4
Two bears, one large and one small, prepare for bed in this board book with a padded cover. A gentle rhyme carries readers through the story as the gender-neutral bears take note of a twinkling star, sleepy owl, badgers, fireflies, and more. “One little bear has a bath before bed./ One little bear is a big sleepyhead,” writes Braun as the small golden bear yawns, purple stuffed animal in hand, while a giant glowing moon hangs in a starry night sky. Throughout, Braun emphasizes both the close relationship between the two bears and the quiet outdoor magic of an evening as it turns to night. Ages 2–5. (Sept.)
