Reviews - What do customers think about Animals Are Sleeping?

Great Educational Resource  Jul 31, 2008
In this high-tech world that children live in, Animals Are Sleeping is a colorful, high-interest book that will captivate your own children or your students! As a teacher and mother of two, I love the text as a model for my students' writing and as a teaching resource for our unit on mammals. A great bedtime story (since the animals are sleeping). This is a beautiful book that I had to have for my own collection of children's books.
A Beautiful Peaceful Book  Jun 18, 2008
This quiet, lovely book by author Suzanne Slade is all the richer for its simple style and prose. The reader immediately relaxes with the first words, "Shhh...shhh..." Each page or double-page spread has a different animal showing how it sleeps. It also becomes a guessing game as the animals are not named in the text, yet there are sorting cards in the back to copy and match to each animal, naming them in turn.

The illustrations by artist Gary R. Phillips have soft muted nighttime colors with a sculptural effect creating just the right tone for the sleeping animals. It makes you wish you could pick up each animal to cuddle. Because of the simplified text, this book would make an excellent early reader, so that reading and writing time can be based on this book as part of a larger unit on animal behavior. This exquisite book is highly recommended for ages 2 - 7.
Perfect for Bedtime!  Apr 12, 2008
"Animals are Sleeping" is a beautiful book about bedtime. Each of the animals pictured here sleeps in a unique way. The illustrations depict the natural environment in soft, yet colorful tones. The soothing text gives clear information that the very young child can understand. There is a treasure of detailed information about the animals sleep habits at the end of the book. "Animals are Sleeping" is perfect for preschool or kindergarten classrooms or as a thoughtful read-aloud before bed. Beautiful Book!
Brilliant, must-have for every child's library  Mar 12, 2008
Sylvan Dell publishes the best in fun and educational children's books, and Animals are Sleeping is no exception.

Any child who is approaching bedtime will love the lovely Animals are Sleeping. The text is low key and informative. The illustrations that accompany the text add so much to the story. The brief text entertains but also teaches the habits of individual animals that fly in the air, or live in water and on land.

The educational part of Animals are Sleeping includes animal sorting cards and various activities that will intrigue children and keep them coming back for more.

The illustrations by Gary R. Phillips are stunning! They are, without a doubt, some of the most beautiful pictures I've ever seen in a children's book. The colors are bright, beautiful, yet soothing and are oh so inviting. They absolutely beg the reader to stroke the pages and are so well done, they could be framed.

Armchair Interviews says: Animals are Sleeping should be in every child's library. It is brilliant!
