2013 Randolph Caldecott Honor Award

This month’s featured book is Sleep Like a Tiger.  Written by Mary Logue and Illustrated by Pamela Zagarenski.

Registration required.
$5 per family or $10 per family to receive a copy of the book.

“Does everything in the world go to sleep?” the little girl asks. In sincere and imaginative dialogue between a not-at-all sleepy child and understanding parents, the little girl decides “in a cocoon of sheets, a nest of blankets,” she is ready to sleep, warm and strong, just like a tiger. The Caldecott Honor artist Pamela Zagarenski’s rich, luminous mixed-media paintings effervesce with odd, charming details that nonsleepy children could examine for hours. A rare gem.
