Everyone’s Sleepy but the Baby

Familius. Apr. 2021. 16p. Board $8.99. ISBN 9781641704403.
Sleep-deprived parents and caregivers will laugh and relate to this hilarious lullaby book. A young baby is surrounded by sleepy objects, people, and animals, but that baby is not sleepy. The concise text’s rhythm and repetition craft a fun read-aloud for both story time and one-on-one reading. “Sleepy nursery, sleepy bottle, sleepy gentle touch./ Everyone’s sleepy but the baby, hush, hush, hush.” Bright, clear illustrations complement the text beautifully, and careful observers will notice everyone’s eyes getting droopier on each spread.
VERDICT Repeated readings might be requested most nights in this solid purchase for all libraries.
