Have you heard of the delightful new book, ‘Too Busy Sleeping’? Recently, I had an opportunity to put my hand up to review this lovely, lovely little children’s book, through the Parent Talk Australia collective. I was very excited when the author, Zanni Louise, contacted me to say she would be happy for me to review her first book.
It’s just gorgeous! It is a little story about a new baby coming home – how will Eleanor, now a big sister, react? It is delightfully illustrated by Anna Pignataro, with a kind of vintage, crafty feel to the drawings. Ms 4 tells me every time we read it, that she thinks the first and last page looks like stickers and buttons, and she tries to take them off.
Both my kids love this book. Little Mr 2 just loves babies at the moment, and on every page points to Reuben and exclaims “bebe!” It’s a positive story, that looks at the arrival of a new sibling through the eyes of a little one eager to play and eager to love.
It’s a lovely book whether you are preparing your kids for the arrival of new baby or not. A little story about excitement, learning patience and love.
I love Too Busy Sleeping because it is positive and joyful, and shows that older kids, even preschoolers, can look forward to the homecoming of a new baby. Even if they’re not quite happy with the sleeping needs of said newborn!
