Toddler-PreS—A little tiger's mama allays his fears of the dark and encourages him to go to sleep. "Dark is just the other side of light. It's what comes before dreams." She assures him that his dreams can be bold and adventurous and that she'll always be right at his side when he awakens. The soothing words and reassuring message and Hallensleben's splendid, painterly landscapes and dreamscapes create a lovely package to curl up to and revisit, nap after nap, night after night.
