Elephant and Gracie are checking out my author’s copy of my newest picture book.
I had lots of fun illustrating TUCK-IN TIME written by Carole Gerber.
Thank you, Carole…for writing such a sweet and delightful text!

Here’s a sneak peek…
When I tuck you in,
what do I see?
Two little eyes shining at me.
I see two little ears
that I want you to tweak
and a round little nose.
Can you push it? Beep! Beep!
So begins this naptime or bedtime romp that eventually has the child all tuckered out and ready for sleep—until Mama remembers she forgot one important thing. What could it be? A kiss, of course!
Early Praise for Tuck-in Time
“A stuffed bunny cavorting on the endpapers as well as a puppy, bunny in its mouth, standing guard by a bed in the following scene, usher children into this delightful bedtime ritual.” – School Library Journal
“A charming bedtime read-aloud.” – Kirkus Reviews
