Great writing and gentle illustrations. The alliterative symphony of Sleep Well Siba & Saba is one of our favourites from powerhouse Lantana.
We love this book so much. The illustrations are so beautiful, and when we read it, it’s almost like we’re in a cradle swaying softly into a dream.
Aniya wants to say:
I like Siba and Saba. It’s interesting how they kept losing things and had a dream about something they really wanted and found it when they woke up!
- Aniya, 7 years old
This book is just so sweet, we read it over and over, and are absolutely in love with those two adorable girls! I can only recommend it, try it... you will love it!
Sweet, dreamy and fabulously fun, Siba and Saba are two very loveable sisters who dare to dream big.
The story conveys a lovely warming feeling making it the perfect bedtime story.
It also a must read to inspire young readers to believe anything is possible.
