About this item

A little tiger takes an imaginative journey

The little tiger lay on his back in the tall grass."Close your eyes, little tiger," said his mother, "and go to sleep."

But the little tiger is worried about what sleep might bring. His mother reassures him that once he closes his eyes, he will dream of magical places. And when he awakens, she will be right there, waiting for him.

Alternating between real-life scenes with the baby tiger and his mother and enchanted dream scenes of sleep's possibilities, Kate Banks's simple, comforting text and Georg Hallensleben's bright, colorful illustrations make this a charming bedtime story for small children.

Close Your Eyes is a 2002 New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year and a 2003 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

An adorable bedtime tale, filled with simple text and lively illustrations, follows little tiger, who is scared of what sleep might bring, as he is soothed by his mother's loving reassurances that once he closes his eyes, he will dream of fantastical places. Jr Lib Guild.
