As warm and comforting as a grandmother's voice, this endearing book in the My Family/Mi familia series makes bedtime a soothing family tradition.

Este encantador libro de la serie My Family/Mi familia, tan cálido y reconfortante como la voz de una abuela, ayuda a convertir la hora de dormir en una armoniosa tradición familiar.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K—As Abuelita tucks her three bouncy grandchildren into bed, she calms them by reminding them of the many small animals that also sleep when darkness falls: "Shh, shh, the squirrels are sleeping." Spreads containing unremarkable watercolor illustrations and a choppy text jump back and forth between the progressively drowsy youngsters and various snoozing creatures. Kids may relate to the portrayal of familiar critters and perhaps be lulled to sleep by Abuelita's steady "Shh," but overall, the book's comforting elements cannot compensate for their haphazard presentation. For better bilingual stories with a bedtime theme, try Sandra Cisneros's Hairs/Pelitos (Random, 1997), Nancy Elizabeth Wallace's Rabbit's Bedtime (Houghton, 1999), or Ginger Foglesong Guy's Siesta (HarperCollins, 2005).—Madeline Walton-Hadlock, San Jose Public Library, CA

Review

"Bright, colorful watercolors show happy children getting ready for bed, detailing the repetitive and rhythmically lulling bilingual story...brings a soothing tone to a nightly ritual universal in any language or culture."
--Kirkus Reviews

"...Grandmother tucks in her three grandchildren, kissing them good night...[A] charming and tender-hearted addition to the bedtime bookshelf, and it should prove popular for both bookstores and libraries."
--Criticas

"The repetitive text--along with the soothing, slightly disproportionate illustrations of a happy Latino family--is perfect for young readers...a welcome addition to collection[s] of easy-readers in Spanish or English." --REFORMA Newsletter
