Time to Sleep
I smell winter in the air." Bear knows it's time to crawl into a cave and fall asleep, but first Snail must be told. Snail feels compelled to inform Skunk. Following that pattern Turtle, Woodchuck, and Ladybug also find out that autumn is over. A gentle surprise ending precedes the quiet final page on which all settle into hibernation with a round of "good nights," welcome sounds for young listeners ready for sleep themselves, in any season. Fleming's trademark handmade paper created from colored cotton rag fiber is assembled in bold visual shapes and autumnal colors.
