So how will you sleep? by Annabel Gardiner and illustrated by Samantha Thorley is a delightful children's picture book. It is the ideal book to read to children at bedtime. Each page has a beautiful illustration. Young children will love the charming depictions of the different animals. The drawings are very detailed and have restful colours. Children will learn about the sleeping habits of several animals. The drawings will encourage further discussion about the animals and their habitats, so there is the potential for children to learn a great deal from this book. There also is a hidden caterpillar to search for on some of the pages. My favourite feature of this book is that the author skillfully presents the story in the form of a poem. The second and fourth lines of each verse rhyme, which makes the narrative flow at a good pace. Children will enjoy the gentle repetition and descriptive words. The text is quite entertaining. We see how and where a bat, a koala, an otter, a fox, a bee, a whale, and a polar bear sleep. The author asks if the reader will go to sleep like one of these animals. Will they be comfortable? The book ends with a good suggestion as to where a child should sleep! I highly recommend this lovely book for young children up to the age of about 5 years old.
