“Close your eyes, little tiger,” comes the plea of this little tiger’s mother. But he’s afraid of sleeping! What if he misses out on the sky, trees, and birds? His mother assures him that there can be all that and more in his dreams. But then what if he falls or gets lost? His mother comforts him with the promise that she will be there for him if anything bad happens. No matter what this little tiger’s concern is, his mother is right by his side, comforting, loving, and helping him drift off into peaceful sleep.
