Night falls, and the world sings a lullaby. From moths fluttering their powdery wings, to a nightingale's sweet trills, to willow trees softly swaying, the gentle rhymes in this picture book will lull little ones to sleep. Tender, nature-filled bedtime scenes sweep across land, sky, and sea, with animal parents everywhere tucking in their children. A final scene features a mother and her baby, bringing it all back home.
