    Highly Recommend

    This story of a little girl who isn't sleepy will resonate with young children and their parents. It is beautifully illustrated, and the relationship between the parents and the little girl is loving and gentle. There are many interesting things to find among the drawings to keep children interested and engaged. This is sure to become a classic!

    This fabulous book transports the readers into a magical, dreamy

    This fabulous book transports the readers into a magical, dreamy world and induces sleep.  A little girl is not tired and cannot sleep.  Her parents don't scold her or reprimand her but encourage her to put on her pajamas, wash her face, brush her teeth and get ready for bed.  The little girl declares she is still not sleepy.  She obeys her parents wishes and feels good "that she is loved/stretching her toes/ down under the crisp sheets,/ lying as still as an otter/floating in a stream."  She asks if everything in the world sleeps which leads her parents to patiently describe how different animals in different places sleep:  bats  hang upside down, whales float along, bears hibernate and finally tigers curl up like a cat and doze off.   After conversing with her parents about the habits of these animals,  the little girl finally succumbs to her weariness and falls fast asleep just like the strong tiger.

    There is a lot of conversation at the beginning of the book and once the little girl is in bed the language becomes more poetic and dream-like, filled with imagery.  The words of the text are warm, cozy and invite you in to share that mood.

    The artwork is stunning and beautifully executed.  The girl's toys are vintage reflecting the animals discussed in the text.  An otter floats on the girl's blue quilt as if on the ocean.  There is a recurring teapot and cup, and crowns for the whole family to wear - very surreal.  The illustrations are mixed media painting on wood and computer illustrations, magical indeed, absolutely gorgeous.  This is a perfect read-aloud for bedtime encouraging you to nestle down, get cozy and everyone (including the reader) to go to sleep.
