The humpback whale sleeps vertically! Sweet Dreamers is about all kind of animals and how they sleep and dream.
There are a variety of land, water, and air animals included. Each page spread features one animal: a close-up of the animal and the animal in its natural habitat. A short description is given about the animal’s sleeping and dreaming patterns. There is a dreamy feel to the illustrations. The background is black with the other colors muted. In between the animal pages are nighttime pictures of a location such as the mountains or a pond where the animals live. The moon makes an appearance in each. Sweet Dreamers is the perfect bedtime book to share with a young child.
