Sleep Like a Tiger

Sleep

Sleep Like a Tiger by Mary Logue and illustrated by Pamela Zagarenski was a 2013 Caldecott Honor Book, the most esteemed award given yearly for illustrated picture books.

The artwork is exquisite. We read this book repeatedly for three weeks. Each evening ML would study the illustrations. She started noticing the repetition of various shapes, toys and patterns scattered throughout the book. ML loved looking for the yellow circle. Sometimes it was the sun, sometimes the center of a flower, and sometimes just a yellow circle.

My favorite was hard to decide. I loved the whale, teapot, elephant and owl. Check out this book to discover your child’s favorite repeated image.
