KIRKUS REVIEW

Archie the bear is having a hard time getting to sleep despite the valiant efforts of his babysitting grandmother in a soothing story that’s certain to appeal to even the most resistant young sleeper. Grandma’s obviously a pro at the art of sleep induction, offering a host of snuggly friends into the bed, a warm glass of milk, and even a lullaby. The final effort proves successful: “She smiled a secret smile as she remembered putting Archie’s mother to bed when she was little.” Parents will be especially touched by the ensuing night-time routine that has been passed down through the generations. Tyger’s adorable illustrations fit the text perfectly, with gentle yet colorful renderings that capture the special moments between Archie and his grandmother. A real bedtime treat for both parents and children alike. (Picture book. 2-5)
