    1. When I'm Sleepy by Jane R. Howard is a wonderful bedtime story. The little girl in the book gets tired and starts fantasizing about going to sleep with different animals in their natural habitat. This book is great for young kids to read before bed and be able to see pictures of animals they have probably heard of and see how they sleep in their own habitat just like the child sleeps in their bed at night. The pictures in this book are astounding and so life like. The story is also a repetitive [...]

    2. (Mommy's review from 11/11/10)This is perfect for bedtime or naptime! Perfect for younger babies or older toddlers even! Julia is five years old and thought it was the citest thing ever.Lynne Cherry's illustrations match the story perfectly. They're simply adorable.The text is minimal and it works. The illustrations are a bigger part of the story.In the story the little sleepy girl lays in bed and wishes about all the ways to fall asleep with different animals. Curled in a cat bed with a cats ta [...]

    3. Right from the cover of the book, you can tell it’s a good book with which to tuck little ones into bed. The cool colors of Cherry’s illustration produce a quiet feeling that matches the soft lines of the sleeping girl and bear. The cozy feeling of the illustrations continues throughout the story as the girl, clad in pink footy pajamas, imagines how different types of animals sleep. Howard’s sparse text is perfect for reading aloud in a quiet voice, stretching out the syllables to promote [...]

    4. This book runs through a girl's thoughts as she falls asleep, imagining the different ways various animals sleep.As she pictures herself in various forms of sleep, she grows more and more tired until she admits, at the end, that she's happy sleeping in a bed, like people do.There's nothing more to it than that, it's just a short book for bedtime, that's all.

    5. I used the Spanish version for a bedtime-themed program for both Spanish and bilingual story times. In the story, a little girls imagines what it must be like to sleep like a certain animal, a bat, raccoon, etc. The charming, peaceful illustrations show the girl and a particular animal sleeping soundly. The end shows the little girl in her own bed.

    6. It's a very sweet concept, and for some reason the girls are both wide-eyed at every drawing. It's fun to see that illustrations of a little girl curled up with various animals - some that they find scary - are pushing the boundaries of their art ideas.

    7. I absolutely cannot read this book without yawning. My kids use to request it at bedtime constantly and it was a real struggle to get though. The wonderful art a perfect match for the gentle, thoughtful tone of the text.

    8. A wonderful book to use at bedtime!!I really like how the little girl imagines herself sleeping, alongside different animals!The best part is that she snuggles down in her own warm bed!

    9. I was drawn in by the illustrations in this clever book. I love to buy this for all the young children in my life.

    10. 3.75 StarsThis is cute enough. I great bed time story. I don't love the pictures but they get the message across! I like the story! Cute one!

    11. great bedtime story.le girl imagines being all sorts of sleeping animals but then ends up warm in her own bed.

    12. Great bedtime story that has a soothing, relaxing feel to it, and a beautiful little red head that looks like my Taylor!
