Everyone’s Sleepy but the Baby by Tracy C. Gold
Summary: Sleepy Mommy, Sleepy Daddy, Sleepy little dog.
Everyone’s sleepy but the baby, Yawn, yawn, yawn. After a long day, the whole family is ready to hit the hay . . . except for the baby. Why is it so hard to get the baby to sleep? With hilarious illustrations that might hit a little too close to home for new parents, Everyone’s Sleepy but the Baby is the perfect, true-to-life bedtime story that will help even the most reluctant sleeper wind down for bed
It’s a scene familiar to any exhausted parent: everyone is drowsy, sleepy, ready for bed – except the baby, who is wide awake! As parents, the dog, and even the toys wind down for the night, the baby wants to play, scrub-a-dub, and coo. Gold’s gentle, rhythmic text and Dafflon’s bright and lively illustrations combine for a perfect bedtime read for sleepy parents and (eventually) sleepy babies. Bonus: it’s just the right length for that “one last bedtime story” that sets the mood for sleep. I am looking forward to adding it to my go-to baby shower gift list!
