Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Information about the numerous positions that slumbering animals assume is presented in an attractive picture-book format. Repetitive rhythmic text, printed in bold typeface, conveys facts about sleep and the concept of opposites: "Some nap right side up, some nod upside down." Crisp, colorful acrylic illustrations effectively support the narrative with deep tones and brighter hues reflecting the respective environments of diurnal and nocturnal animals. Creatures are easy to identify, from those of the African plains to others found in ocean habitats or in underground dens. The satisfying conclusion shows a sleeping child. An appealing introduction to animal behavior that could be used along with Mem Fox's fictional Time for Bed (Harcourt, 1993).-Diane Nunn, Richard E. Byrd Elementary School, Glen Rock, NJ
Kirkus Reviews
Some Sleep Standing Up ( May 1, 1996; 28 pp.; 0-689-80509- 8): In a soothing bedtime book, some sleepy animals and a spare text—a short line per page—show that there are many ways to slumber and many synonyms for sleep: rest, relax, snore, snooze, drowse, nap, etc. In a quiet, lilting text, the words often rhyme, not always smoothly. Still, the conclusion will leave children reassured: "Some slumber by night, some slumber by day. But they all sleep just right in their own special way. Like you." Bright acrylic illustrations with the look of paper cutouts show stylized animal forms that are easily recognizable to preschoolers. Stockdale's first book shows promise.
