ANIMALS DON'T WEAR PAJAMAS

A Book About Sleeping

Age Range: 5 - 7

Pub Date: March 1st, 1992
ISBN: 0-8050-1710-0
Publisher: Henry Holt

 A gentle, poetic good-night book, with parents and children of various ethnic groups--plus 16 different, slightly anthropomorphic animals--settling down to sleep. ``Tired Chinese golden monkeys huddle and cuddle for comfort. They gather together wrapping their arms around each other, and stay that way for a long sleepy-time hug.'' In her charming illustrations, Owens (The Caribou Alphabet, 1988) uses blue, green, and tan, night washed and fluid, to enhance the text's warm, relaxed tone. A soothing, entrancing lullaby, with some intriguing (if undocumented) animal facts. (Nonfiction/Picture book. 5-7)
