I loved the pictures and facts. I'm not personally a fan of rhymes but my son likes them. It helps him remember things. It could be a bit longer though. Maybe add squirrels or hedge hogs. Something else cute and fuzzy.

Super cute rhyming bedtime book. You learn about the animals sleeping environment and get to gaze upon the great illustrations.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the ARC.

such a cute book and very informative as well, without being overwhelming. children can learn more about the different animals and habitats without looking like they're learning.
the drawings are so cute and I can see this as a book that will be read over and over again to the young child.

A delightful illustrated rhyming book about the sleeping places of numerous baby fauna. A few fish, a few birds, and lots of mammals are introduced to us humans in a lovely way.
The illustrations by Andrea Gabriel are sensitive, imaginative, colorful, and delightful.
Well suited for reading WITH someone of any age including ESL, and great for gifting to everyone, but especially to a school, hospital, or your local public library!

A cute little book about the sleeping habits of different animals across the globe. Very cute taking the perspective of young animals, making it perhaps easier for young children to relate to.
The illustrations were fine.
The poem became a bit too repetitive, always starting with the sentence: "Where do I sleep?". When it's that many pages and examples it because too much.

A perfect book to teach about habitat and animal babies.

My kid adored all animals and their baby versions. She is especially fond of baby elephant (she calls it hathiphant which is half hindi and half English).

Overall a pretty and informative book for kids.

Thank you Netgalley and sasquatch books for the wonderful ARC in exchange of an honest review.

The author shares where various Pacific Northwest animals bed down for the night concluding with a human child. Beautiful illustrations accompany the poetic lullaby.

This is a fun rhyming book. The information is pretty usual. However, the illustrations are amazing and the author does their rhymes so well that this book is a joy to read.

Potentially a wonderful bedtime book, but actually one that is probably too engaging for the young naturalist. We get a lot more here than I expected – more species, more text, more interaction and drama and atmosphere. The script is coming from the character of all the baby animals we meet, from a baby whale to a puffling, and from a mountain goat to a ghost of a spider in its dew-laden web. They all get an AABB four-line verse to describe their home and admit to what they are, and on more than one occasion we see two in a double-bill if you like, sharing the spread. The art is not hyper-real, but certainly qualifies as accurate and yet full of character, cuteness and indeed that atmosphere, with the weather conditions portrayed very ably.

And the point remains, that even if the text is spoken in a lulling fashion, and even if it ends with an instance of the human species showing off where it is sleeping, there is a lot of goodness here, and someone with an eye to the differences in nature will want to stay awake and cram this all in. This could send some to sleep, but equally give other minds a fillup and get them wanting more. So bear that in mind if you really just need a lullaby book – but also bear in mind this is a very rich option indeed. And I think that qualifies as the excellence-with-something-extra that allows for a five star rating.

As a parent I love finding those perfect books to add to our bedtime routine. This was the perfect addition to our collection. This story was not only soothing but taught my little ones about animals in the wild and how they behave as they sleep for the night. It was a fun way to show children that all creatures sleep in their own way. Each page of animals has a 4 line rhyme that is a fun way to teach the children, and us, about each animal. We loved the wolves on their pillow of grass and hidden with the cougars in their well-hidden place. The colorful and vibrant illustrations are so calming they add to the wonderful story. This book is a great addition to your home library. It can even be used in an early childhood classroom as little ones get ready to relax for a nap. We love this book and you will too.

‘Where Do I Sleep?’ by Jennifer Blomgren it’s a lovely book with fantastic illustration. A perfect lyrical bedtime lullaby. She presents a variety of animals families as they bed down to sleep, different habitats and homes that the animals in Pacific Northwest lived.

It has a nice rhythm to it that lulls my kids to sleep and is educational so it’s good for them. Each little poem is short and sweet with just the perfect words to teach and interest all of us. The illustrations are magical, and give you a cozy glimpse into the sleeping quarters of a gray whale, sea otter, bald eagle, blacktailed deer, gray wolf, brown bat, mountain goat, cougar, garden spider and red fox. The color are soft, perfect for a bed time story. I found it to be a great children’s book with very nice pictures that peak children’s interest in animals and the outdoors.
This book can be useful and stimulating for children who are in a learning system. They can have discussions about habitat, a jumping off point to investigate how other animals sleep. If you are a classroom teacher may also want purchase this and challenge science or writing classes to try thei own version of the Jennifer Blomgren picture book.

This book was adorable. My kids and I really enjoyed this book. It was fun to read the rhyming text about each different animal. I think this may become a family tradition, we all really loved it. A very sweet book that is a perfect bedtime read.

Thank you to NetGallery and Little Bigfoot for the temporary ARC that I received in return for my honest review.

Love this! It’s really cute and talks to you about all sorts of animals in the sea and how they sleep. It’s cute but also teaches you actual animal facts like swims have to △⃒⃘lways move to survive even during sleep.

I thought that this was a such a lovely book!

The illustrations are just wonderful and they work so well with the writing.

The book is one I can see being a firm favourite and it was definitely a hit with my daughter and I - we read it at bedtime several nights running and I can see it being read a few more times again.

I loved the concept and it was a really well written book that was easy to follow and read for my six year old too - a pleasure to read.

It is 5 stars from us for this one - very highly recommended!

Loved this book. Perfect for nap time or bedtime. Soothing. Calming. Relaxing. Beautiful illustrations. Tells about young animals and people. I learned where they sleep and what they are called as babies. In rhyming form, very nice cadence, that flows. I was given an ARC to review if I wanted. My opinion is heartfelt. Looking forward to more by this author and illustrator.
