Join us for Sunday Story Time, with milk and cookies as always, as beloved French author and illustrator Isabelle Simler reads from her newly-translated book Sweet Dreamers.  Isabelle will read in French, and then our own children's book specialist, Phillip, will read it in English.

A gorgeous bedtime book from an award-winning creator!

From the celebrated creator of Plume and The Blue Hour comes another enchanting animal book. Countless cozy animals are settling in for the night, but they all sleep in different ways. A bat dreams upside down, a hedgehog snuggles into a pile of leaves, and a humpback whale spins in its sleep like a ballerina.

With its poetic language and lush illustrations, Sweet Dreamers will dazzle young readers as they drift off to sleep themselves.


Isabelle Simler is the award-winning author and illustrator of The Blue Hour and Plume (both Eerdmans). Both books were featured in the 2017 Society of Illustrators "The Original Art" Annual Exhibition, and Plume was named a 2017 New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book. Isabelle lives in France. Visit her website at
