PreS-Gr 3–Did you know that meerkat families sleep in a big comfy pile? Or that ants take quick naps up to 250 times each day? In this informational picture book, young readers discover all of the unusual and funny ways that animals get their rest. Each spread features an animal species on the verso with a human child on the recto, each engaging in their own nighttime routine. The tender illustrations employ rich, saturated colors. The snoozing animals have personalities but are realistically drawn. The children are depicted with light, tan, and dark skin tones and are engaged in recognizable and universal bedtime activities, such as cuddling a stuffed toy. Readers are encouraged to keep turning the pages in order to find out how the next animal sleeps in comparison to its human counterpart. A variety of mammal, bird, reptile, and insect species are featured. Whether feathered, furred, or pajamaed, snoozing is a top priority.
VERDICT A fun and factual title, sure to be a bedtime favorite.
