Everybody Sleeps

We rated this book:


All the creatures of the earth have to sleep, all birds and anteaters and snakes and monkeys and bats and pigs and sheep and whales and hens and…well, you get the idea. Everybody sleeps. Everybody, that is, except Fred. Fred has other things to do, a whole, big, long list of other things to do. Fred needs to break the world record for shouting. Fred has a horn collection that he needs to test. He needs to practice his karate and hunt for Sasquatch. The list is long and awesome. Is there anything that can get Fred to go to sleep?

It is really a difficult task to create a bedtime story that is fresh and new, but author and illustrator Josh Schneider has done it. All of the text about the creatures (except Fred) is written in perfectly metered rhyme. All the Fred lines are great surprises. This book is fun and funny. The art is silly and funny and absolutely charming. This may well be the best bedtime book to come out in the last several years and will be a fast favorite with little ones. This book is absolutely not to be missed.
