Put baby down for a nap Venetian style with this picture book about a mother and father weaving through the city’s labyrinth of canals on a gondola. While the mother guides the boat, the father soothes his child to sleep with descriptions of the sights and sounds of Venice, from tolling bells to “kites of drying laundry.” Wispy pastels mix with bold patterns to form a dreamlike rendering of the floating city in this transportive tale.
