Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS Fleming's pulp papermaking technique, with its soft edges, warm colors, and highly textured look, gives this book just the right tone. The repetition of sleepy, oh so sleepy pairs well with the repeated question, Where's my sleepy baby? as various animals are introduced. From the familiar panda and penguin to the lesser-known anteater and orangutan, the many creatures are depicted in their natural environments. The final spread features a tiny human baby, which, for any child still awake after this soothing read, will be a pleasing sight. Barbara Elleman, Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, Amherst, MA

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Although a human baby yawns on the book jacket, this soporific picture book introduces various animals at bedtime on each of the first 12 double-page spreads. The text begins, “Tiny baby panda, / sleepy, oh so sleepy. / Tiny baby ostrich, / sleepy, oh so sleepy. / Tiny baby lion, / sleepy, oh so sleepy. / Where's my sleepy baby?” On one double-page spread after another, a baby animal closes its eyes to sleep, protected by a watchful parent. Written on a single page, the text would look like four stanzas followed by a coda. Though woven through with words used repeatedly in the verses, the ending shifts its sense and rhythm as subtly as breathing shifts when someone drifts off to sleep. Briefly the focus narrows to the human children, then broadens to include all the world's sleeping babies. Formed using Fleming's signature medium of “pulp painting,” which simultaneously creates the image and the paper that bears it, and accented with pastel pencil, the large-scale illustrations are bold in form and rich in color. With mesmerizing words rolling along, this large-format bedtime book does its job so well that it's hard to repress a contented yawn when the story winds down to its quiet ending. Preschool. --Carolyn Phelan

I read this book one day at the library while tutoring. I immediately knew I had to buy it for my grandson. I later ordered a second copy for a shower gift for a friend's grandson. Such a beautiful story.

The rhythm of the book is compelling - 'tiny baby [animal] - sleepy, oh so sleepy' with lovely animal pictures on each page; every third page then asks 'where's my sleepy baby?'. My daughter loves the book, and answers 'where's my sleepy baby?' each time by seeming to hug herself and say her version of 'me'. The last couple of pages aren't as interesting as the rest [to me - my daughter's fine with them], but my daughter loves the book, and the repetition and wording are perfect for bedtime. My daughter took to it instantly, and has requested many many re-reads.

Beautiful illustrations accompany very simple text, "Tiny baby panda, sleepy, oh so sleepy/ Tiny baby ostrich, sleepy, oh so sleepy/ Tiny baby lion, sleepy, oh so sleepy. Where's my sleepy baby?" Pattern repeats with different baby animals until story finishes with, "Here's my sleepy baby, my tiny sleepy baby. Sleep tight, sleepy babies, tiny sleepy babies" and the illustrations depict a human baby. The luminous illustrations are classic Fleming created by pouring "colored cotton fiber...through hand-cut stencils": A beautiful baby panda lies asleep against a warm green background, a baby penguin sleeps soundly on the feet of his parent, and baby otter lies "sleepy, oh so sleepy" on his mother's tummy. This is a gorgeous lyrical bedtime story that young children will request again and again.

Sleepy, Oh So Sleepy will make you sleepy just reading it. The text has a relaxing rhythm as the author introuces us to a variety of baby animals ranging from possums to lions to koalas, all the while asking "where's my sleepy baby?" It's only at the end that we get to see the sleepy little human, by which time your sleepy little human might already be asleep. This book brings to mind such bedtime classics as Goodnight Moon. The illustrations are done in what has become the author's signature pulp painting style and use mainly muted colors. The pictures of the giraffe and the possums were particular stand outs for me, although they are all very striking. This is a worthy addition to any child's permanent collection and is sure to become a bedtime tradition in many households. Recommended.
