What's a girl to do when her stuffed animals just aren’t sleepy? The little red hen is fixing herself a snack, the monkey’s doing cartwheels, and the cow appears to be singing karaoke. It’s a good thing this little mommy has a few tricks up her sleeve. With a bit of persistence and a lot of tender loving care, she’ll get her babies bathed, read to, and snuggled . . . just in time for bed.
Bryan Langdo's cuddly cast of characters is a perfect match for Alison Inches's exuberant text, which winds down to a soothing bedtime ending that's perfect for anyone who's ever had a favorite stuffed friend.

PreSchool-Grade 1–As a little girl prepares for bed, she gets her wide-awake stuffed animals ready, too. One by one, she hushes them as she bathes, brushes her teeth, and puts on her pajamas. Eventually everyone is settled down and tucked in for the night. The story is told in rhyming couplets that are effective despite some stretches. My polka-dot pig/plays electric guitar./Hush, dotted pig–wish on a star./My little red hen/eats alphabet soup./Hush, little hen–/climb into your coop. The watercolor spreads enliven the text with fun depictions of the toys antics. The illustrations are framed by a color border and contain rich details that will engage readers. The background activities include a cat-and-mouse chase, a teddy bear brushing her teeth, and a cow searching a drawer for pajamas. Good for bedtime or a sleep-themed storytime.–Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NH
