What better way to encourage a little one to sleep than with a soothing rhyme and image after image of sleeping animals! This gentle picture book introduces the sleeping habits of many animals—from puppies to whales—and compares them to the sometimes-unusual habits of human babies. In backpacks, on knees, in cradles or trees, sweet babies can sleep anywhere!
"Búzio's palette is strong in mint, lemon, salmon, and red, lending a retro feel to her illustrations... animals described by salient features and babies with just line eyes, noses, and mouths, their cheeks tinged with pink scribbles."— Kirkus
"The tone is light and playful, and the one or two lines of text on most pages make this a perfect read-aloud selection. An excellent first purchase for baby and toddler storytimes."— School Library Journal
