Shhhhh! Everybody's Sleeping by Julie Markes

Book Description

Does the farmer sleep on a mattress of hay? Is the baker's bed made of soft, doughy bread? And is the grocer most comfortable resting on a bed of lettuce? No matter what the bed or walls look like, when the day's activities are done, it's time for everyone, big or small, to go to sleep.With whimsy and humor, Julie Markes and David Parkins show that -- although everybody has a unique idea of quiet and order -- happy dreams and slumber await all when evening falls.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » This is a wonderful new story in the bedtime tradition. Now the day is done and everyone (except the reader) has gone to sleep. Each page visits a slumbering person in their perfect occupational background. "The librarian is sleeping. Books put away." Her bed is a large book softened by billowy blankets and pillows and her teddy is still wearing his spectacles, which match hers. Even her lamp is a book. The fireman's bed is bright red and complete with a bell, firehose, and a plush spotted dog. The snoozing policeman is still directing the cars that slide over his highway-decorated quilt. There's even a gardener nestled among his flowers with a blanket of grass. The snoozers are smiling serenely as if their dreams are divine. The story concludes with a final sweet message that will lull any tiny one into a safe and snuggly sleep. In taffy-bright pastels, the magnificent illustrations offer imaginative details that cannot fail to amuse and soothe readers. (Picture book. 2-5) (Kirkus Reviews)
