Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS—As a mom helps her daughter get ready for sleep, their routine of pajamas, teeth-brushing, and good-night kisses is accompanied by the repetition of that supremely suggestive word. "Sleepy teeth and sleepy lips/Sleepy toes and fingertips/Sleepy quilt tucked all around/Sleepy world of nighttime sound." This soothing story, which includes graphite, ink, and digital illustrations of yawning pets and toys, will remind children that bedtime is a time for quiet and dreams.—Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada
Kirkus Reviews
A quiet rhyme follows a little girl through her nighttime routine. The yawns begin on the very first page and are contagious. A little girl, her puppy, a toy and even the picture on the wall all have their mouths stretched wide open: "Stardust sky and silver moon / Someone's sleepy / Bedtime soon." She takes a bath, puts on her pajamas, brushes her teeth and gets tucked in tight. The lulling text highlights different parts of the body, prompting parents to gently touch each part (maybe even with a kiss) during sweet bedtime read-alouds. "Sleepy shoulders / Sleepy knees / Sleepy through-the-window breeze. // Sleepy teeth and sleepy lips / Sleepy toes and fingertips." Warm jewel tones and cozy crosshatching, along with heavy lids and those oh-so-realistic yawns, give Andreasen's illustrations a comfort just right for bedtime. There will never be a magic book that puts every child to sleep, but this hushed cadence is certain to soothe. (Picture book. 2-5)
