Sleep in Peace (Paperback)
This charming book-length poem is the perfect bedtime story. It assures the child trying to put off the inevitable that no matter where or how they live, everybody goes to bed sooner or later. Children learn that, just like them, kids around the world are going to bed too. And, just like them, God watches over all children as they Sleep in Peace.
