Sleep Like A Tiger

9780547641027Anyone who tries to put a non-sleepy child to bed on a regular basis needs this book. It gives eloquence to the nightly battle:  “She told her father, ‘I’m just not sleepy.’ They (her parents) nodded their heads and said she didn’t have to go to sleep. But she had to put her pajamas on.”

Everything in the world sleeps:  Bats, snails and tigers too. Even little girls who vow to stay awake all night.

Sleep Like A Tiger is written by Mary Logue and illustrated with layered magical beauty by Pamela Zagarenski.
