Are You Sleeping, Little One? by Hans-Christian Schmidt and Cynthia Vance
Animals are a popular choice for children's books; baby animals can be so cute. (I particularly liked the sloths). Each animal gets a page, and each page has two lines. The lines don't always have an exact rhyme, but there is a soft rhythm that can help to lull children to sleep. There's no shortage of bedtime books out there, but given that bedtime happens every day (and maybe even multiple times a day, if you include nap times), it's a market that can hold a lot of bedtime books. If you're looking for gentle, animal-based bedtime story, this could definitely be the book for you.
I received a review copy from NetGalley courtesy of Abbeville Press.
