Do Mommies Ever Sleep?

Little, Brown. Mar. 2024. 40p. Tr $18.99. ISBN 9780316669665.
PreS-Gr 3–Simple rhymes bring to life the completely sleepless life of a mother in a humorous way. From drinking cold coffee (“Is she scared to drink it hot?”) to growling tummies and gassy behinds, this book laments all the reasons why mommies probably are not sleeping from the point of view of a child. Howard highlights just how magical the small moments are for the child, while Obuhanych’s fun illustrations mimic a painterly palette mixed with colored pencil sketching and bring bright, vivid life to the tired mother.
VERDICT This fantastic story for families, for tired mothers, and for curious children is a great addition to any school or personal library.
