Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
09/01/2014
PreS-Gr 1—This book is perfect for easing children into bed. Beginning with sunset and a young girl chasing fireflies with her grandmother, lyrically simple four-line stanzas bring readers from the field at dusk with "darkness glowing" to the farm where "piglets whuffle" to the town where "headlights shimmer" and to the night of a young boy's room as his mother tucks him into bed. The refrain "Yawn around, yawn around, sleepytime sky" repeats through each location, ending with "Yawn around, yawn around, sleepytime me./Night-night. Sleep tight. Sleep tight." The illustrations work seamlessly with the text, with blues and greens depicting the cool country night and warm yellows and golds in the lights of the town and home. Farm toys, cars, and trucks wait on the boy's star-printed rug for him to play again tomorrow. As the verse and artwork move from the vast sky to a small cozy bed, children will surely yawn and snuggle (and perhaps whuffle) as they drift off to sleep. This book is destined to be a much-requested, oft-repeated selection.—Martha Link Yesowitch, Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, NC

    I bought Sleepytime Me for my granddaughter and she loved it! She told me she read it to her sweet Golden Retriever, Shannon, and that while she was reading Sleepytime me, Shannon smiled, made sweet soft sounds, and then Shannon fell asleep!
