Sleep Little Kiwi Sleep introduces young children to nocturnal creatures that are busy with their 'day', while they themselves are tucked up in bed fast asleep. Sleep Little Kiwi Sleep is the perfect bedtime story for sleepy little kiwis. The language has a lovely gentleness to it which complements the illustrations of the night forest. The book also includes a Te reo Maori translation of some of the creatures featured in the illustrations and text.
