Time for Bed, Miyuki by Roxane Marie Galliez
From Princeton Architectural Press:
Outstanding Merit, Bank Street Best Children's Books of the Year, Noted for Diversity
Like children everywhere, Miyuki's imagination peaks at bedtime, whenshe remembers all the things she has to do before she can possibly go to bed: she needs to water the vegetables, gather snails, and prepare for the arrival of the Dragonfly Queen. Her patient grandfather follows along on her adventures, gently encouraging her to go to sleep. In this beautiful story about family, nature, and love, young children and their parents find a welcome companion for their own bedtime journey.
