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 multi-generational, 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.
Briana Corr Scott paints and writes from her home studio in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, where she lives with her husband and three children. Her paintings and stories capture the beauty of the natural world, particularly the overlooked details in the weeds and flowers found along the Nova Scotia coast. She is also the author of Mermaid Lullaby, Wildflower, The Book of Selkie, and She Dreams of Sable Island.
