A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month July 2018 | Gorgeous illustrations attractively answer any curious child’s question: where and how do different animals sleep? Moving quickly past the familiar indoor animals such as dogs and cats, Kate Prendergast shows geese sleeping on the pond, giraffes sleeping standing up, a sloth sleeping upside down and penguins sleeping on their feet in the freezing cold. They also show bears who sleep all through the winter and ants who only sleep for a few moments at a time. Brief notes at the end provide exactly the right amount of information to add detail to the pictures. ~ Julia Eccleshare
