The sun is setting and it's almost night. Children from various families say goodbye to friends—including the sun, trees, and flowers—and move inside to complete their bedtime routines. With vivid imagery and child-friendly poetry, each verse ends with the simple refrain, "We sleep when day is done."
When Day Is Done is a soothing bedtime book, perfect for calming down after a busy day.
"This comforting, rhythmic picture book is perfect to read when day is done and it's bedtime for little ones. Its lovely imagery and soft rhymes remind kids that all the beauty and fun of the day will be waiting for them tomorrow, too, but that right now, it's time for sleep and dreams."
—Laura Purdie Salas, award-winning author of In the Middle of the Night, If You Were the Moon, and many other picture books.
"Lyrical and soothing, When Day Is Done gently reinforces the bedtime routine while assuring young ones another day awaits them after they rest. A lovely tuck-in story."
—Annie Cronin Romano, author of Before You Sleep: A Bedtime Book of Gratitude and Night Train: A Journey from Dusk to Dawn.
"Soothing stanzas remind young children that people, animals, and plants all go to sleep at night. Beautifully written text is accompanied by soft illustrations featuring children with an array of skin tones."
—Tina Cho, author of Rice from Heaven
