A nostalgic bedtime book featuring lyrical text and gentle illustrations from the celebrated author of Wildflower.

From celebrated author and artist Briana Corr Scott (Wildflower, The Book of Selkie) comes a nostalgic bedtime story that celebrates the milestones of growing up. From the earliest days, when baby is asleep in a wrap or sling, to their first night in a crib, to their very own big-kid bed, before finally moving to an adult bed of their own, While You Were Sleeping follows a diverse range of families from childhood to adulthood, highlighting the unsung activities parents engage in while their young ones are asleep. Whether it’s wallpapering their baby’s bedroom, making lunches for school, earning degrees, washing dishes, or taking their child for a soothing walk in the stroller.

Featuring vibrant oil illustrations in Corr Scott’s uniquely warm and whimsical style and showcasing a range of family makeups, from single-parent to multigenerational, and including caregivers of various ages and gender expressions, this gentle, lyrical book offers a fresh, modern perspective on how both children and their parents grow up, together.
