The Big Book of Slumber by Giovanna Zoboli and Simona Mulazanni

We have a soft spot for warm, cozy illustrations and bedtime books. Thus, this book, which is chock-full of gently quirky rhyming verses and richly detailed illustrations of a wide variety of anthropomorphic animals deep in slumber, is right up our alley.

While the book reads well, some of the rhymes seem slightly forced — although, considering that this book was originally published in Italian (titled Il grande libro dei pisolini), the translator did do a commendable job with the text. Besides, with a book like this, it’s likely that most of your attention would be rightly focused on the whimsical illustrations.

And, if sleepiness were contagious, then looking at all the animals who are snoozing away from cover to cover, will send you to bed with sweet dreams indeed.
