This was the first book my busy toddler really loved. Now she's 4 and can read it herself, and she still loves it. And what's more, I'm not even tired of it! The humor, the rhymes, and the dialogue that invites participation are all great. "Meatier" than the smaller Boynton board books, but still in just-right bite-sized chunks. In my opinion, the best Boynton's done (unless you count Rhinoceros Tap, which play to a somewhat older audience but is also a huge winner).

My parents sent this little book to our daughter and since then I have had to read it so many times that I actually know at least two of the little stories by heart. Not a problem -- they are witty, almost all have a fun twist at the end that adults can enjoy, and the drawings are as cute as ever. An added bonus: You can read it the famous "one more time" quick enough to satisfy the little one and get her into bed in decent time. Recommended.

Sandra Boynton's books are absolutely lovely!
This one has become one of my child's favourites for going to bed. We have been reading it since the age of 3 until 4.5 years old, and it never gets boring. THere is a story about snoozers (animals who nap all day but refuse to sleep at night), a little bear who is not tired yet, a yawning giant dino-bird, different animals putting on funny pyjamas, six sleep sheep who do activities before bedtime, animals snoring in the jungle and a very silly but adorable lullaby.
My personal favourite in this particular book ist the one about the tired little bear who keeps insisting that he's not tired!
It's suitable for boys and girls. Highly recommended, just like all the other Boynton books.

For the mother who said "Thanks a lot for giving us Curious George Flies a Kite -- it's 70 pages long!" here's the answer. Snoozers is short, real short, and as bright and cheery as a fistful of greeting cards. The individual stories revolve around bedtime themes and are just the right length for little ones to memorize and "read" themselves, and the board-style pages are sturdy enough to withstand all manner of abuse, even teething. Best of all, it's Boynton!
