“Telling the story of what happens in nature while you’re sleeping, this story reads like a prose poem. Stunningly illustrated, it’s beautiful and magical at the same time. A perfect gift book.” –Huffington Post
“…lyrical, peaceful and deeply comforting, it has the feel of a bedtime read-aloud classic, and is one of the most beautiful picture books of the season.” –The Bookseller
It started with one tiny flake, perfect and beautiful and special, just like you. Then there were two, and then three. In this enchanting, lyrical lullaby brought to life by award-winning illustrator Isabelle Arsenault, the beauty of a northern night unfolds as a young child sleeps. Wrapped in a snug, downy blanket, a snowflake falls, and then another and another. Soon the magic of the night outside takes hold – animals awaken, snow swirls, stars twinkle and winds whisper. A mixture of magic, wildlife and deep comfort, tip-toe through the pages of this beautiful bedtime read-aloud, and try not to break the spell of the peaceful, quiet, wintry north.
A lyrical ode to the wonders of the night is brought beautifully to life by the award-winning Isabelle Arsenault, illustrator of Jane, the Fox, and Me.
