A little girl who's not sleepy discusses the sleeping habits of various animals as she gets ready for bed. Before she knows what's happened she's "fast asleep."
What I thought: I really liked this book. The illustrations are wonderful. This is the second time Pamela Zagarenski has received a Caldecott Honor. Will we be seeing a Medal from her soon, I wonder? My favorite illustration is the girl with the polar bear. Pair Sleep Like a Tiger with Time to Sleep by Steve Jenkins.
