Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K - Although this well-conceived book is based on a simple premise, its execution is wonderfully expansive and enticing. On each spread, rhythmic verses introduce a community helper who is sound asleep, followed by a phrase reassuring readers that this person's responsibilities have been taken care of for the day. "The doctor is sleeping. Everyone feels well./The grocer is sleeping./Food's ready to sell." At story's end, a mother tucks in her baby. While the text is clear and purposeful, it's the art that allows the book to soar. There's a largess to the bright, dynamic paintings that's comforting. Peaceful smiles grace everyone's faces as they nestle deep within their plush beds. The individuals are seen snoozing in the midst of their workplace; the librarian's bed is set up among shelves of books and the fireman dozes in the back of his truck. This is a fun idea, in perfect sync with a child's perspective. Plus, each person cuddles with a special stuffed animal, the teacher with her spectacled owl and the policeman with a raccoon dressed in striped jail fatigues. This book will get youngsters thinking, not just about the inevitability of bedtime but also about how we are all so intimately connected to our communities. - Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI

From Booklist

*Starred Review* PreS-Gr. 1. Not quite everybody is asleep in this beguiling book. "The teacher is sleeping. / School's done for the day. / The librarian is sleeping. / Books put away." Each turn of the page displays a community helper asleep at the workplace in a themed bedstead. The fireman sleeps atop a fire engine; the grocer snoozes below a billowing lettuce headboard. Although the rhythm is less precise than the rhyme, the text satisfyingly moves along while the artwork soars. Amusing, affectionate scenes will show up beautifully from a distance (think community helper units) and work equally well for bedtime reading. Glowing with warm colors in subdued hues, the sturdy pictures stretch wide across double-page spreads, offering surprisingly energetic, varied compositions, considering that nearly every scene features a sleeping person. On the dedication page, an evening townscape gives children a chance to point out notable buildings that house the sleepers: the grocery store, the bakery, the police department, and more.

My 2 1/2 year old son loves this book. We took it from the library and now I'm here to buy it since it enjoys it so much. It's a simple read, and short enough for a toddler bedtime. The premise is that each page shows another person sleeping, but people children would know. Like the teacher is sleeping (surrounded by school things), the librarian is sleeping (with books around her), policeman, etc. My son likes to see everyone sleeping, and the illustrations are gentle and have enough going on so we can talk about what he sees. For instance, in the picture for the pages on the Farmer is sleeping, he's using a sheep for a pillow and one of his socks fell off. My son thinks that's pretty funny. And at the end, a little boy just like him is shown going to sleep. I highly recommend it, especially for kids that don't want to go to sleep!

this book has great and interesting pictures as well as a great message: everyone all around town regardless of who they are needs to go to bed too. my only qualm is that it does lean towards being men-centric... most of the jobs depicted are assigned to a male in the book... ex. policeman, doctor, fireman... we tend to change the words we use on those pages to reflect a more appropriate message... for example, police officer rather then policeman... too good and unique a book to pass up even with the antiquated wording... my son was so obsessed with this book we ended up checking it out of the library 2xs and then buying it.

This book is a favorite of my grandsons. The text on each page is brief and the illustrations are wonderful--the type of book an adult can read over and over to a child without becoming annoyed or terribly bored. :)

My 21-month-old daughter loves this book. She asks me to read it every night before bed. It is short and engaging enough for young toddlers, but would appeal to older kids as well. It only has two short sentences per page and is beautifully illustrated. I don't even mind reading it over and over.

Shhhhh! Everybody's Sleeping
Audio book for children, rhyming words, about how different people from different professions go to sleep at night.
Love all the different careers that are talked about in this book and the characteristics of their life styles.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).

My 4 year old loves this book!! I checked it out from the library but she loved it so much I had to buy our own copy. Used was very reasonable and only minor dust cover damage. It's great for bedtime.

This was a nice book with nice pictures but it has a lot of gender stereotypes. I had to choose a children's book for school and write about the different gender stereotypes and this is one that stood out the most to me. They could have used different words as someone else mentioned.

This deceptively simple book is a really wonderful bedtime book. The rhythmic text is easily chanted, and the large, colorful full-bleed pictures effectively represent each character's job through their surroundings and stuffed animals. (The fireman has a dalmation, for example.) A soothing bedtime story for children from 6 months to 2-3 years.
