About the Book



A hilarious and honest story of how hard it really is to get baby to fall asleep before you do!

Sleepy little dog.
Everyone's sleepy
But the baby,
Yawn, yawn, yawn.

After a long day, the whole family is ready to hit the hay . . . except for the baby. Why is it so hard to get the baby to sleep? With hilarious illustrations that might hit a little too close to home for new parents, Everyone's Sleepy but the Baby is the perfect, true-to-life bedtime story that will help even the most reluctant sleeper wind down for bed.



Review Quotes




"In a board-book tale that will feel all too familiar to many sleep-deprived parents of infants, a baby just doesn't want to settle down and go to sleep!

Mommy, Daddy, and even the dog are fighting yawns and drooping eyelids. Meanwhile, a bright-eyed baby is playing on the carpet with no signs of slowing down. Readers follow the baby through their bedtime routine: bathtime and then snuggling with stuffed animals. The text lists many objects in the environment that are sleepy, from the bubbles and bathtub to the stars in the night sky. Throughout it all, the baby's big round eyes stay wide open, and they are ready to play. It seems as though the baby will never mellow out and rest. Finally, after drinking a bottle while held in Mommy's lap, they are shown asleep in their crib. Bright, geometric illustrations with plenty of busy patterns provide visual interest but are perhaps too busy for infants of the age depicted. Repetitive rhyming stanzas about the indefatigable baby and the very sleepy environment may help calm young readers at bedtime--or at least help exhausted parents feel seen. Human characters have beige skin.

A cute bedtime story that revisits a well-known theme. (Board book. 6 mos.-1)" - Kirkus Reviews


"Sleep-deprived parents and caregivers will laugh and relate to this hilarious lullaby book... The concise text's rhythm and repetition craft a fun read-aloud for both story time and one-on-one reading... Bright, clear illustrations complement the text beautifully, and careful observers will notice everyone's eyes getting droopier on each spread... Repeated readings might be requested most nights in this solid purchase for all libraries."
--School Library Journal, starred review

"My new favorite bedtime read, Everyone's Sleepy but the Baby has it all: pleasant rhyme and rhythm, cute illustrations, a plot every parent can relate to, and most important at bedtime, brevity! I smiled the whole way through."
--Amanda Rawson Hill, author of You'll Find Me

"It's a scene familiar to any exhausted parent: everyone is drowsy, sleepy, ready to hit the hay--except the baby, who is wide awake! As the parents, the dog, and even the toys wind down for the night, the baby wants to play, scrub-a-dub, and coo. Gold's gentle, rhythmic text and Dafflon's bright and lively illustrations combine for a perfect bedtime read for sleepy parents and (eventually) sleepy babies. Bonus: it's just the right length for that 'one last bedtime story' that sets the mood for sleep. I am looking forward to adding it to my go-to baby shower gift list."
--Kathy MacMillan, children's librarian and author of Nita's First Signs and Nita's Day

"With the gentle, rhythmic cadence of classics like Goodnight Moon and fun art featuring frazzled parents, Everyone's Sleepy but the Baby is perfect for the modern (sleepy) parent to lull their little one at bedtime."
--June Smalls, author of She Leads: The Elephant Matriarch
