Spend a year in a magical forest where humans, birds, cats, orangutans, and even extraterrestrials live together happily, and enter a dream world where the Secrets of Sleep ensure restful nights for all. Life is busy as the seasons change and the forest kids experience adventures, games, creativity, friendship, and love. Meet Baby Bud, a wee birdie who's never too sleepy for a bedtime story; Füzzy, a shape-shifting Secret of Sleep; Celeste, a charming tabby; and Goldenbeak, a tiny space alien who wants to hang out with the big humans. Come to the studio as the sleep jockeys prepare a midnight broadcast. Revel in the festivities as the Mystery Cats are sworn in. And don't forget to get your sleep order in now--the sleepy train awaits!
Using the language of colors and textures associated at times with seasonal variations and different animals, children of all ages won’t be able to keep from smiling and enjoying this gem of a book.
For myself, I couldn’t read it in one sitting; I kept falling asleep, even when I wasn’t tired. It has a unique rhythm to it that made me so sleepy.
I give The Basket of Seeds a score of 5 stars! It is so unique and delightful!
