Babies Can Sleep Anywhere by Lisa Wheeler, illustrated by Carolina Búzio
Babies Can Sleep Anywhere
Review Copy from AbramsAppleseed
To me, one of the most wondrous things about becoming a new mother was the way my daughter could sleep anywhere. Eleven years later when baby number three arrived, we would park his basinet in the center of the kitchen/family room and marvel at the way he slept amid the chaos. Babies Can Sleep Anywhere is a sweetly rhyming reminder of this time, joyfully illustrated with a gentle palette and playful patterns.
Wheeler shows readers all the places and ways that baby animals sleep, from puppy piles to upside down bats to pairs of goats and moose taking a snooze in a cranberry bog. Each quatrain ends with the refrain, "But babies can sleep anywhere." The gentle rhymes and soothing colors are meant to lull little listeners to sleep, but this book is such a delight to read and the illustrations are so wonderful, you'll want to keep your eyes open!
