Sleepy Boy by Polly Kanevsky, Stephanie Anderson

During the day, the boy has been to the zoo where he has seen a lion and her cub. As nighttime falls, the boy and his father share a book. It's the boy's bedtime, but the boy is not sleepy. He is still with the lions. Sleepy Boy is a lovely hymn from a new author — a hymn to day and to night, to awake and to asleep, to mother and child, to father and son.

As a mother of two boys who loves animals I loved how the author weaved both into her goodnight story. SLEEPY BOY is about a little boy who spent the day at the zoo, however, it is night now and he is supposed to be going to sleep. But he can't. He keeps remembering the lionness and her cub he saw at the zoo, and how that animal mother took care of her cub. The author uses all the senses to describe what the little boy is experiencing. I liked the author's choice of words. I also liked the beautiful, soft illustrations. Dad's may enjoy reading this book to their sons, because the story starts off with Dad trying to put his little boy to bed. Mom is in the story too. I think little girls would enjoy this book despite the story being about a little boy. The theme is also something both boys and girls should be able to relate to. Sometimes it is difficult to fall asleep, especially after an exciting day. Kids can't stop thinking about all the fun things they did. Sometimes as an adult I feel this way too. I can remember when my kids were young, lying beside them, like the dad in the story, and pretending to sleep, to try and get my kids to sleep. SLEEPY BOY is a gentle, sweet, calming book. I liked it. A. D. Tarbox, author of ALREADY ASLEEP
