Go to Sleep, Little Farm by Mary Lyn Ray and Christopher Silas Neal

Somewhere in a farmhouse, a little girl dressed in pyjamas is winding down with her favourite book and teddy, getting ready for bed. But she’s not the only one; as dusk turns to night, other creatures on the farm and the surrounding woodlands are also getting ready to sleep — as are, amusingly, some other more unusual examples.

Featuring the quietly elegant and sleepily muted illustrations of Christopher Silas Neal, and some of the most dreamy and whimsical turns of phrase we’ve seen in a children’s book, this refreshingly original bedtime story reads like a modern-day adaptation of Big Red Barn and Goodnight Moon — coincidentally two of our all-time-favourite bedtime books by the inimitable Margaret Wise Brown — in a good way. And, like them, Go to Sleep, Little Farm is destined to be a timeless blockbuster bedtime classic that will be enjoyed for generations to come.
