Sleepy Beasties

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A pair of original board books by Neecy Twinem highlights where animals eat and sleep: Hungry Beasties and Sleepy Beasties. Pastel artwork shows the creatures in their natural habitats as "Toucans picnic on juicy fruit" and "Flamingos rest on one leg." Both end with images of a child.

Children's Literature
Animals and humans are shown enjoying some rest. They all choose interesting places to snooze. The sloth sleeps upside down suspended from a limb, while the flamingo sleeps on one leg—positions that humans would probably not find conducive to sleep. The darker tones in the illustrations and the borders with moons, stars, and clouds evoke nighttime. But some animals such as owls and alligators take their snoozes during the day. The closing scene of the young boy asleep shows him surrounded by stuffed animals that reprise those detailed earlier in the board book. A companion book is entitled Hungry Beasties. 2006, NorthWord, Ages 1 to 3.
