I'm amazed on the author's proficiency of naming A to Z animals, since I liked to play this game of picking an alphabet and named an animal when I'm still a kid, and found some alphabets are quite hard. And the illustrator for drawing the exact animal. Am also surprised that cassowaries came out, an unusual animal. Even though this book will accompany little children before bed, but the animals are entertaining enough for their knowledge.

What a lovely book. It shows how different animals (starting from A to Z) sleep. There are some interesting animals in there, together with more common ones. I very much enjoyed reading it, plus the illustrations are beautiful and leave a lot to be discovered. I'd say this can be used from 3 years on. A very cute book!

We loved this book! Not only does it incorporate the alphabet (one of our favorite things) but the flow, the pictures, and the animals we've never heard of had baby smiling and engaged from page one. It was also fun as mom learning some new things that later we can look up and explore more together.

Thank you to NetGalley for allowing us the chance to read it early.

I loved the illustrations in the book, they are really great and lovely to look at.

I thought that the story was good and it was one my 6 year old daughter really enjoyed too.

We read the book together and then she read it to me the next night and has asked for it again tonight – you can’t really give greater praise to a children’s book than that with the number of books that there are available.

It is 5 stars from me for this one, it is already a firm favourite in our house – very highly recommended!
