Everything will be here when you wake...
A gentle, poetic lullaby for baby, filled with memories from a perfect day playing on the beach. Castles, sand dollars, seals peering out of the waves and the beat of the ocean become sweet reminders of all the magical things that await baby tomorrow. A lyrical celebration of natural beauty and a soft, reassuring reminder for little ones being tucked into bed that fun and adventure will return with a new day.

Elly MacKay’s paper-theater worlds are a delight to behold and infuse the story with a sense of magic and wonder. Beautiful verse from Laurie Elmquist sets a calm and serene tone. A breathtaking board book that will be treasured and make a wonderful gift.
Kirkus Reviews - June 22, 2016
"The text is lyrical...with greatly lulling effect...MacKay's evocatively lit cut- and marbled-paper dioramas are equally soothing, rendered in pastel twilight tones that suit the mood...A seaside bedtime idyll."
Publishers Weekly, Starred - April 1, 2016
"Dreamy artwork and verse reassure readers who are headed to bed...Enchanting, engaging, and restful."
Resource Links - April 1, 2016

School Library Journal - March 1, 2016

Quill & Quire - March 1, 2016

CM Magazine - January 19, 2016
“MacKay’s...illustrations are dreamlike…This board book...captures the beauty of the ocean, and it would evoke pleasant memories when falling asleep. Recommended.”
