Sleep ABC

When nightime approaches, all the world is ready for sleep. The small kitten yawns at the hearth, the lambs in the field close their eyes, and a young child waits for a goodnight kiss. Margaret Wise Brown's tender rhymes and Esphyr Slobodkina's patchwork-quilt motif artwork gently and lovingly illustrate each letter of this sleepy, bedtime alphabet, first published in 1953.
