Children's Literature - Wendy KeenPart of the "New Reader Series," this colorful tale introduces children to a simple series of words and repetitions that they will be able read themselves. The quiet humor of the story and Bianchi's marvelous illustrations will delight every reader. Parents and caregivers will recognize the zookeeper's bemusement when confronted by sleepless charges. Everyone will enjoy the sight of a tiger in footed pajamas.
Children's Literature - Maggie MeachamOne by one, the animals come knocking on the zookeeper's door telling her they cannot sleep. She gives each one a book and suggests they read a bedtime story. Soon they are all back, telling her they can't read. They pile on and around her bed while she reads to them, and soon she is the only one left awake. This slight but amusing tale will make early readers smile, and the colorful, cartoon cutout-style illustrations of the animals in their pajamas and bathrobes will make them laugh. The book will work as a read-aloud for very young children, or as an easy reader.
