KIRKUS REVIEW

Possibly the best of Millicent Selsam's first science books tells how different animals get their sleep. Habits, preparations, and positions are explained in a pat text, and two-tone drawings by Helen Ludwig, that are more than factual in their funny evocation of the innocent humor in so much of the world's shut-eye. The kids, and you, will laugh at the hard of hippos using each other's bottoms for pillows, at a giraffe with his long neck placed carefully over his hind end, and at guinea pigs getting their naps in a hurry. A nice wakener to something children are curious about.
