PreS—As a mom helps her daughter get ready for sleep, their routine of pajamas, teeth-brushing, and good-night kisses is accompanied by the repetition of that supremely suggestive word. "Sleepy teeth and sleepy lips/Sleepy toes and fingertips/Sleepy quilt tucked all around/Sleepy world of nighttime sound." This soothing story, which includes graphite, ink, and digital illustrations of yawning pets and toys, will remind children that bedtime is a time for quiet and dreams.—Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada
