    One thought on “Shhhhh! Everybody's Sleeping

    1. Kathryn

      3.5 STARS I like seeing different people, from the grocery to the librarian, tucked in their beds sleeping surrounded by their wares. A few are a bit stereotypical (like the pudgy baker) but I also like that we can't see if the President is a man or a woman!

    2. Huda

      This book reminded me of a thought I had on mind a couple of days ago; when we're used to seeing people in certain situations that we can hardly imagine them in any other.All people do go to sleep

    3. Kelsey Yates

      Loved looking at the details of each sleeper. The Librarian sleeps in the library in a bed that is made of books. She and her teddy bear have fallen asleep reading. Each page is like that - a baker, a gardener, a fireman.

    4. Tracey

      Another winner. I think it may have even convinced someone to go to sleep a few times. The illustrations are quite clever and our little toddler really enjoyed them.

    5. Miss Sarah

      This cute book features all kinds of different people and their jobs going to sleep like the postman after his mail has been delivered. Would make a cute extension. Toddler and up.

    6. Susan Foster

      Very cute book, showing community helpers sleeping in their appropriately themed beds. Fun for Story Time, even though it's probably meant to be a bedtime read. Super cute!

    7. Pamela

      It reinforces steroetypes that women are only teachers, librarians, and cooks, while men are "policemen," "firemen," "postmen," "doctors," etc. Women should have been in more than 3 of the many roles and language such as "police officers," "firefighters," and "mail carriers" should have been used. I read this book to my daughter and would not recommend it to anyone.

    8. Jessie

      This is a very soothing, nice bedtime book with great illustrations.Each time you turn the page, there's someone from a different occupation sleeping, and the page is filled with items from their occupation. I think this book would probably be enjoyed by ages 1-7. The age would be younger if not for the excellent illustrations and more to talk about from the pictures for older kids.Also, there is a youtube video with this book being sang, and the words work perfectly with the text of the book, s [...]

    9. The Book Maven

      Warning: Don’t read this in bed. Or when you’re tired! The rhythmic, lulling nature and flow of the story, and the peaceful images of Teacher, Librarian, Farmer, Fireman, and so on sleeping soundly after a hard day’s work, will (hopefully) leave the intended audience on the verge of a sound sleep. I don’t have much experience with toddlers, but I think this book has as good a chance as any to put your kid to sleep. And maybe you, too! For maximum benefit, read in a soothing, low tone of [...]

    10. Eve

      The illustrations really made this book, although as an adult I'm glad I don't sleep where I work. (The librarian's room is a bunch of bookshelves, the gardener sleeps on a giant sunflower) Written during the George W. Bush administration, I found it gratifying that the author wrote, 'Even the President is sleeping, with so much to do!' (Aha—I saw what she did there!) In any case, a nice demonstration that yes, everyone sleeps—even the President (who may or may not have worked very hard that [...]

    11. Christine Turner

      Does the farmer sleep on a mattress of hay? Is the baker's bed made of soft, doughy bread? And is the grocer most comfortable resting on a bed of lettuce? No matter what the bed or walls look like, when the day's activities are done, it's time for everyone, big or small, to go to sleep. With whimsy and humor, Julie Markes and David Parkins show that happy dreams and slumber await all when evening falls.Subject:Sleep -- Juvenile fictionBedtime -- Juvenile fictionRhyme -- Juvenile fiction

    12. Matthew

      This lullaby poem is really made by the illustrations. Every page is concerned with another member of the community being asleep, but what makes it is that they all are asleep in their respective place of business. I laughed at the teacher sleeping in her classroom and the baker asleep in the bakery and the zookeeper asleep with zoo animals asleep all around him. It was really a cute story. I enjoyed thoroughly.

    13. Miss Pippi the Librarian

      When jobs and chorse are done for the day, everyone goes to sleep. Everyone includes our community helpers. Markes shares an excellent tale about everyone in town going to bed. Readers can identify which community helper is featured on the page. This books also would make a perfect ending to a community helpers theme storytime or week.Theme: SleepAdditional themes: community helpersReviewed from a library copy.

    14. Jade Detzer

      I loved all of the colorful pages! The illustrator used every inch of the page to make intense pictures of each individual sleeping. It also showed each character clutching on to things they deal with every day in their beds. This book would be good to use for a rhyming lesson or even art and how the colors popped out so well. This is also a good story for bed time.

    15. Jackie

      Bedtime is so much fun when all the adults are sleeping soundly, cradled among the places and things that are part of their jobs. If they are all sleeping, who should be sleeping, too? You!Wonderful, conversation-starting illustrations by David Parkins make Shhhhh!Everybody's Sleeping come to life for little ones.Use for 11/2009 Family Jammie Storytime.

    16. Julie Barrett

      Shhhhh! Everybody's SleepingAudio book for children, rhyming words, about how different people from different professions go to sleep at night.Love all the different careers that are talked about in this book and the characteristics of their life styles.I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).

    17. Jen H.

      Great for babies/toddlers. Rhyming text that shows different community helpers going to sleep. "The teacher is sleeping. School's done for the day. The librarian is sleeping. Books put away. I like that everyone is sleeping in a bed where they work. Teacher has bed in the classroom, Fireman is sleeping on the truck, Grocer asleep in the grocery store.

    18. Tricia

      Displaying sleeping characters ranging from teacher to toddler sleeping surrounded by items that "define" them, children will get a chuckle out of this title that is a calmly reassuring reminder that everybody does sleep!

    19. Alyson

      This was the right kind of bedtime story--talking about sleep in a peaceful way but with interesting, often funny details on each page. The librarian's headboard is a giant book; the postman's pillow is a large package tied with string; it's all fun and interesting, but calming.

    20. Lesley Looper

      Sweet story, showing a variety of community people with jobs young children would recognize, all sleeping. The illustrations are colorful, yet soothing. It reminded ME to start getting ready for bed! :-)

    21. Lauren Brown

      This story is adorable. It is about all the community is sleeping and then at the end it adds that you should be too. This is good for preschool age children. I enjoyed it and all the good illustrations.

    22. Jennifer Kelley

      The kids at our pajama storytime really loved the illustrations! They had a great time. This is a great book for storytime. Each two page spread shows someone sleeping--teacher, librarian, baker--with the accouterments of their occupation surrounding them.

    23. Shala K.

      B is not as suggestable as the average pre-schooler apparently. At four months, she looks askance at any book that says she should get ready for bed or worse take a nap, so this book was a failure for the getting ready for bed storytimes. She liked the illustrations, though.

    24. Fayola

      I love how this book shows children that everybody sleeps, children usually think that teachers, cops, firefighters only workey never really think that they do regular things like sleep also. So I love how it shows different people can sleep to, great bedtime story.

    25. jacky

      The illustrations make this one good. People of different professions are going to bed and their sheets and toys mirror their work. Might be more fun for adults until your child is old enough to understand the different jobs.

    26. Kimberly Ann

      As the denoted in the title: Everybody Is Sleeping. The Teacher, the Librarian, the Fireman, the grocer Everybody, and each with a simple rhyme about their job. This is easy to read and follow along. The illustrations are bright & colorful.

    27. Shelby Troutman

      The pictures in this book are Great! They show professionsals sleeping in child-like rooms. This will give children the idea that all of the careers are reachable.

    28. Vicki

      A wonderful book with great illustrations for the younger crowd at Storytime. This could be used with a community helpers theme, but I used it as a nap/ sleeping theme.

    29. Janae

      A good book if you want to illustrate (literary) what various careers do. Each person is shown sleeping in their work setting: teacher at school, librarian in the library, etc.

    30. Mary

      I got a kick out of everyone sleeping alone at his/her own workplace, with all the trappings of their profession and their unique stuffed animals. Sweet bedtime book
