This beautiful book by a much-awarded Scottish author and illustrator will help soothe very young children on rainy or snowy nights.
The various caretakers in this book represent all kinds of very lovable looking animals and other creatures, who reassure the children:
“If thunder tore the night in two
and lightening played at peeka BOO,
we’d watch the storm pass overhead,
then curl up safe and snug in bed.”
“And if that breeze became a gale –
whipped leaves, snapped twigs, made branches flail
I’d wrap you safely in my wings
and tell you tales of sleepy things.”
The author does her own illustrations, which are delightful.
