Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
From the glitter on the title on the cover, this dazzling trip around the world is a treat for the eye. On five double pages, a line of text first tells us how a child sleeps. Then on a facing page, as we pull a tab, the pictured scene changes, to tell what happens "By day . . . " Kende is in the desert, Kamanga in Africa, Machiko in Japan; Melisse sleeps under palm trees, Siiku in an igloo in the snow. On the sixth double page, the children magically all appear together to laugh and play by day; then at the pull of a tab, they sleep at night. Of course, this is only a very simple introduction to some cultural differences with an emphasis on experiences common to all children. The pages are all bordered in shades of blue patterned with designs suggesting fabrics of no specific ethnicity. The stylized, painted illustrations include a few objects of some geographic identity; the fabric patterns are particularly attractive. The final illustration, enlarged on the cover, encourages peaceful sleep. The pulls are sturdy enough to withstand quite a bit of pulling. 2004, Kane/Miller Book Publishers, Ages 3 to 6.
