Books | A Book of Sleep

Today we’ve a new book to share with you. I came across this book whilst visiting a friend and her baby. I sat and read it and absolutely adored it, one that we’d definitely recommend. 


A Book of Sleep is written and illustrated by Il Sung Na, an American author and illustrator. You can find out more about him here.

It’s sometimes seen as ‘Zzzzzz’ A Book of Sleep. This a sweet little book which is perfect to read to young babies and children. The illustrations are very intricate and the words are equally as lovely.

The book starts:

When the sky grows dark
and the moon glows bright,
everyone goes to sleep . . .
except for the watchful owl!


From there the book takes a journey past other animals and looks at how they sleep. This book has a very calm and soothing nature.

‘A Book of Sleep’ was Il Sung Na’s first book, and although this is the first time we’ve come across it, it was indeed published in 2007. A beautiful addition to any baby or toddler’s bookshelf. Il Sung Na has since released more titles which we look forward to reading in the future. You can buy it from Amazon, here. ISBN-13: 978-0375866180
