Sleep, Cat, Sleep! by Antje Damm (ISBN: 978-3791374482; Board Book $9.95; Ages 2-5)

My thoughts: 
Originally published in Germany, this board book is a tad old in attitude for babies that are normally the target for board books. The book reeks with humor and cat-attitude. 

Children who are early in their own reading careers and who are developing a sense of humor, will surely love this cute book.

Prestel Publishing in association with Penguin Random House have a reputation for bringing humor, European thinking, artistry a bit different from what we usually see here in the States. I delight to see just what Prestel Publishing is going to come up with next. 

Sleep, Cat, Sleep! will have your toddlers giggling at the cat and reader exchange in this sturdy little book. So be careful as you open the book..... cat wants to sleep.

About the book: It can be hard to fall asleep because who wants to stop playing, talking, and just having fun. Sometimes, it's just as difficult to stay asleep. There can be noises, lights, and many other distractions. Cat has this very problem in Sleep, Cat, Sleep! He's calmly resting until you open the book and wake him up. Every time he thinks it's safe to fall back asleep, you flip the page and bother him again! All he wants is for you to close the book so he can start dreaming away. Author and illustrator Antje Damm has created an uproariously funny book to help young children fall asleep. They will be delighted with all the different ways Cat can come up with to get kids to let him sleep. A new surprise awaits with every turn of the page, but we don't want to give away who falls asleep at the end of this book!

I received a complimentary copy to facilitate a review. Opinions are mine, alone and are freely given.
