Overview

Little Sleepyhead by Elizabeth McPike, Patrice Barton

Baby's bedtime is more cuddly than ever! 

Tired little eyes,
ready now for bed,

Tired little everything,
precious sleepyhead.

                                                                                                                                                      
By the end of a busy day, little knees are tired from crawling, little arms are tired from stretching—even little lips are tired from blowing kisses. But with the help of gentle verse, and art as sweet as a bedtime lullaby, tired little eyes will quickly give way to sleep.

Shhh . . .

About the Author

Elizabeth McPike once had three little sleepyheads. Now they are grown and she has no idea when they go to bed, but suspects it is late. A writer, editor, and late-afternoon napper, she lives in Washington, DC. On a perfect day, she is likely to be found in her garden or in the remainder section of her nearby bookstore or sitting in a quiet pew by a stained-glass window.

Patrice Barton created her first painting at the age of three, in Crisco on the dining room wall. She has illustrated many picture books, including Mine! by Shutta Crum and Sweet Moon Baby by Karen Henry Clark. Patrice lives in Cedar Park, Texas.

Spare text and large, fluid illustrations come together in Little Sleepyhead by Elizabeth McPike and Patrice Barton (illustrator) to create a delightful bedtime story. McPike's rhyming tale flows as smoothly as any lullaby, describing a child's body parts, from "tired little toes" to "tired little everything" as a variety of "precious little sleepyheads" are prepared for bed. The text is presented in couplets printed in a different color on each spread. Barton's illustrations show a variety of babies, siblings, and caregivers in large format on a white background that will translate well for those viewing the book up-close or from a distance in a read-aloud setting. An excellent choice for bedtime-themed programs or one-on-one nighttime routines. *A more condensed version of this review appeared in an issue of School Library Journal from which it can be seen in various sites online*
