The title gives the small show away. It's a slow and pleasant piece of propaganda to use with reluctant nappers or at bedtime. The sleepy people shown have the same shapes (nearly formless, very simple wash and line) of The Gats (1965) a Herald Trib honor award book we failed to appreciate much at Kirkus. They are shown as a family unit preparing for bed with their eyes tightly closed and the combination of text and pictures urges imitation. The Sleepys go through a routine for bedding down that includes stretching, yawning, singing quietly and snoring. Effective.
