cat is trying to put her
kitten to bed in this sweet story in verse - '
Your teeth are brushed, / your book is read. / Go to sleep. It's time for bed. / One more book, says Sleepyhead.
' (I love the myriad of books strewn across the small feline's floor!)
n it goes in a sequence familiar to all parents, as Sleepyhead demands just one more hug, one more kiss, one more drink, '
One more teddy, one more snuggle. One more comfy, cozy cuddle.
' And, as always happens, despite that busy, resisting mind, the kitten finally succumbs to the sandman.
loved Karma Wilson's endearing rhymes, and appreciated the style of illustrations - reminiscent of the work of Richard McClure Scarry - and the fact that they reflected the little one's imagination, repeating elements of the drawings in the books the small cat read.
