Author/Illustrator: Adele Enersen
Publisher: Dial Books, 2015
Themes: bedtime, night, imagination
Opening: One evening, Vincent decided he didn’t want to go to bed.
Summary: (from my library catalog) Having decided he does not want to go to sleep, Vincent unravels the blanket of night and transforms it into a cat, a lullaby, and even an elephant before finally giving in and closing his eyes.
I like this book because: It’s cute! I love babies, books mixing photographs and line, and good use of black and white. The writing itself may not stand out, but the illustrations carry it with ease.
Resources/activities: Use pen or yarn with photos (or magazine snippets) to create your own mixed-media artwork.
