The illustrations in this book are gorgeous. Highly recommend -- it is helpful for kids, who never want to sleep!, to know that all animals sleep, it is not just they who go to bed!

Good story about a little girl who doesn't want to go to sleep. Parents describe various animals to her and how they sleep. Art work is nicely done. Story moves along well. Recommended.

Winner of a 2013 Caldecott Honor. In this magical bedtime story, the lyrical narrative echoes a Runaway Bunny - like cadence: "Does everything in the world go to sleep?" the little girl asks. In sincere and imaginative dialogue between a not-at-all sleepy child and understanding parents, the little girl decides "in a cocoon of sheets, a nest of blankets," she is ready to sleep, warm and strong, just like a tiger. The Caldecott Honor artist Pamela Zagarenski's rich, luminous mixed-media paintings effervesce with odd, charming details that nonsleepy children could examine for hours.

I didn't care for this book. It was a little weird. I wouldn't choose it to read to kids I was babysitting.

This is a story that all parents and kids will relate to - it's bedtime, but the protagonist just isn't sleepy and she doesn't want to go to bed. What follows is a sweet account of her conversation with her very patient parents, and it has a happy ending (a sleeping child). As charming as the book is, though, the illustrations by Pamela Zagarenski are stunning. They complement the story and make this a book worth buying.
