Shhhhh! Everybody's Sleeping

Shhhhh! Everybody's Sleeping

by Julie Markes Illustrated by David Parkins

Does the farmer sleep on a mattress of hay? Is the baker's bed made of soft, doughy bread? And is the grocer most comfortable resting on a bed of lettuce? No matter what the bed or walls look like, when the day's activities are done, it's time for everyone, big or small, to go to sleep.

With whimsy and humor, Julie Markes and David Parkins show that — although everybody has a unique idea of quiet and order — happy dreams and slumber await all when evening falls.
