Discover how different animals go to sleep in this rhyming picture book from a veteran children's author!

Follow along as three children learn about the bedtime routines of squirrels, parrots, dolphins, and many more. Meerkats sleep in a stack. Is that how these kids go to sleep? Or do they hibernate in snow all winter long like frogs? Or maybe they sleep the day away like skunks? No, that can't be right!

By the book's conclusion, the kids have imitated all kinds of animals who are portrayed sleeping in their natural habitats, thanks to Sydney Hanson's charming illustrations. Readers will recognize the way the human child eventually goes to sleep--with stuffed animals, a bedtime story, and a kiss good night!

She has been fascinated by the Lewis and Clark Expedition since the age of ten, when an uncle told her about an ancestor who had gone on the expedition. That ancestor was sixteen-year-old George Shannon. Kate lives in New York City and Sag Harbor, New York, with her husband.

Sydney Hanson is the illustrator of How Do You Take a Bath?, written by Kate McMullan, and Panda Pants, written by Jacqueline Davies. Sydney was raised in Minnesota alongside numerous pets, and her illustrations and paintings still reflect a love for animals and the natural world. In addition to her book illustrations, Sydney is an experienced 2-D and 3-D production artist who has worked for several animation companies, including Nickelodeon and Disney Interactive.
Industry Reviews
"Writing in cadenced, lulling rhyme, McMullan compares animal sleeping habits to those of various children, inviting readers to ponder their own slumbering style." --Kirkus Reviews

"Young readers will want to cuddle up with the cozy animal babies and may chuckle as the kids try out the different sleeping methods.... A bedtime book that will soothe and please." --School Library Journal

"A dozen animals are introduced before the text turns to the variety of ways in which human children actually sleep, culminating in a sweet wind-down to cuddles and snores." --Booklist
