Are You Sleeping, Little One? by Hans-Christian Schmidt and Cynthia Vance

Animals all over the world need to go sleep. Dogs, caterpillars, kangaroos - all of these little ones go to sleep with their parent watching over them carefully. As you read about these animals, it's the perfect opportunity to curl up as your own little one lays down his head and nods off to dreamland.

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.
