The Best Bed for Me by  Gaia Cornwall
Mama and Mommy would like Sweet Pea to settle into bed, but it's not quite time. Even though the bed is fluffy, it's not as snuggly as curling up like a pig in the mud, or as spacious as sleeping in the wide ocean like a blue whale. After mimicking all the ways different animals rest, this little one concedes that a comfy bed, a soft pillow, and a good-night wish offer the best way to fall asleep after all.
Venetian Lullaby by  Judith L Roth
The sounds of lapping water and dipping oars ease readers into the famous canals of Venice, Italy. With mother as gondolier and father singing his calming song to baby, a family floats serenely through this one-of-a-kind historic city. The baby drifts deeper and deeper into Venice's maze and--finally--sweet sleep.
