NEW Kids Picture Books: Day 20

Go Sleep in Your Own Bed!
by Candace Fleming & Lori Nichols
May 2017. 40 pages.

From Amazon: "This funny and irresistible picture book feels like a classic in the making. When Pig plops into his sty at bedtime, he finds Cow fast asleep in his spot. "Go sleep in your own bed!" he squeals, and sends her packing. But when Cow finally snuggles down into her stall, she finds Hen sleeping there. So begins a chain reaction of snoozing barnyard animals being awakened and sent off to their own beds, until every last one is in just the right place. Young children will delight in repeating the refrain "Go sleep in your own bed!" and laugh at the antics of these hilarious—and very sleepy—farm animals."

My thoughts: I can see this being super fun as a read-aloud, with all of the goofy noises the animals make. Plus the children's librarian in me imagines this as an interactive book, using stuffed animals,  flannel board pieces, etc. I figured out early on how the book would end, but that didn't make it any less enjoyable.

Recommended Age: 3-7 years
