Imagine laying your child down, but rather than ducks or sheep, you have a safari of animals to sing them to sleep.
The happy animals in this book rest under a dreamy blue-vioelt sky filled with smiling stars and would add an elegant touch to any children’s library.
This book is the collected paintings of the Sleepy Safari set to a lyrical ballad that’s perfect for lulling any little one right to sleep. This book is special to me because it’s dedicated to my niece – the first of my family’s next generation. May all the children in our lives have happy dreams.
Sleepy Safari is written and illustrated by award winning artist, K. Ryan Henisey. All illustrations are watercolor and ink.
Zebras cuddle close for the night. The sweet creatures enjoy the warm company of cousins and companions. When Zebras are bunched together like this, it is difficult for predators to tell them apart; their stripes cause too much visual confusion. Happily, they rest under the stars, their natural camouflage helping to keep them safe.
Zebras can be found in Sleepy Safari, available for free download on iTunes. Good night all, happy dreams.
Good morning, universe. It’s official – I’ve started production on the next Restful Reader, Tuckered Tundra. The new book will feature the same delightful and familiar ballad stanza rhyme scheme and fully illustrated watercolor images of our favorite northern animals.
For now, let’s look back at the favorite critters from the first three books, Sleepy Safari, Dreamy Desert, and Slumbering Sea.
