My Bed: Enchanting Ways to Fall Asleep Around the World

Author(s): REBECCA BOND

Children's Non-fiction

Delightful rhymes and charming hand-stitched art celebrate the many ways we sleep across the world. Perfect for a baby shower gift and for fans of This Is How We Do It. My bed rocks on water My bed sways in the breeze My bed's beneath a curtain My bed's aloft in trees... In the Netherlands, some beds rock on water. In Brazil they might sway in the breeze. From Canada to Japan, Afghanistan to Norway, sleep has taken many forms and shapes throughout history. Astonishing, hand-stitched illustrations and a delightful narrative tell the story of sleeping traditions across the world. AGES: 4 to 7 AUTHOR: Rebecca Bond is the author-illustrator of many books, including Out of the Woods: A True Story of an Unforgettable Event and Escape from Baxter's Barn, a Junior Library Guild Selection and Amazon Editor's Favorite Pick. Salley Mavor rediscovered her childhood delight in sewing and creating miniature scenes while studying at RISD. "I found I could communicate ideas more clearly than with pencil or brush, that my hands would direct me in a compelling way." Her innovative bas-relief sculptures appear in the award winning, Pocketful of Posies: A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes, as well as other picture books.
