Synopsis

Close Your Eyes by Kate Banks

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, colourful illustrations make this a charming bedtime story for small children.
