Simon can't sleep until every part of the world is sent to bed as he is, this happens each and every night. So one by one, his dad bids them good night, inching the blanket higher on his son's chest. Continents and habitats, even realms of fantasy are sent to sleep as Simon is. ( )

This is a really creative book! The colors matched the context very well. Simon and his room was always red until the end when he can finally go to sleep (blue/ purple color). All parts of the world are different to show a separation and distinction in Simon's head. Very cute!!

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0888996993, Hardcover)

It’s the same every night: Simon doesn’t want to go to bed. And once he’s lying down he can’t close his eyes until his father climbs the stairs and begins their nightly ritual. The world must be put to sleep. Continent by continent, habitat by habitat, even the imaginary realm of elves, princesses, and fairies must succumb to Simon’s father’s dreamy incantations, before Simon can deliciously relax and let himself go. Dominique Demers’s poetic text and Nicolas Debon’s romantic images remind every parent and child of the pleasure that can be found in a sweet shared ritual that takes all the pain out of going to bed.

Simon cannot go to sleep until his father climbs the stairs and begins their nightly ritual of putting the world, continent by continent, habitat by habitat, to sleep.
