A chain reaction of noises wakes several children (and a cat) living in an apartment building. But it’s late into the night, so despite the disturbances, one by one, the building’s inhabitants return to their beds—this time, with a new set of sounds to lull them to sleep.

This timeless bedtime picture book features diverse characters and a rhythm so perfect that it’ll prepare little readers for slumber themselves.
