Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
A poetic, sing-song text flows throughout the pages of this tantalizing book. With a flip of the page, it is clear how several animals—including the flamingo, sloth, groundhog, polar bear, clownfish, lizard, seal, koala, and elephant—sleep in their own habitat. Listeners will learn that some animals sleep while standing, hanging, floating, perching, and curling up, and also that some sleep quickly and some sleep during the night while others sleep during the day. In the end, a special animal, the human child with whom the listener can identify, sleeps peacefully in bed with his kitten. A pleasant, repetitive "Shh…shh…" plays to the interest of the listeners at different times in the text and makes this a perfect bedtime story. By the time the reader utters the ending words, "Good night, sleep tight," a listening child may already be doing so. Soft-edged illustrations are rendered in sleepy-time pastel colors. They enrich the beautiful text. Language arts, math, geography, and science are covered in sorting activities at the end of the book. Reviewer: Nancy Garhan Attebury
School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2- While many picture books feature animals sleeping, either individually or in mother/child pairings, this title takes the concept a step further. Not only are the creatures shown in their natural habitats, but they are also depicted in their natural poses. The sloth is upside down, the giraffe is gently resting its head on a high tree branch, and the clown fish are tucked in between the gently swaying seaweed. The calming and peaceful text winds down to a "good night, sleep tight" conclusion with a little boy tucked into bed, his cat asleep at his side. The lush full-color illustrations continue the soothing effect of the text, casting shadows and layers without being too dark or too heavily drawn. Two concluding spreads suggest animal sorting cards and activities, including fill-in-the-blank types of questions that give just enough factual and interesting information to keep young minds engaged either in a classroom, during a pajama storytime, or at home on a caregiver's lap.-Lisa Gangemi Kropp, Middle Country Public Library, Centereach, NY
