Praise

“McPike’s rhyming tale flows as smoothly as a lullaby, describing a child’s body parts, from ‘ tired little toes’ to ‘tired little everything’ as a variety of ‘precious little sleepyheads’ are prepared for bed. . . . Barton’s illustrations show a variety of babies, siblings, and caregivers. . . . An excellent choice for bedtime-themed programs or one-on-one nighttime routines.” —School Library Journal
 
“Try holding still while reading ‘Tired little arms, stretching up so high, // Tired little hands, waving bye, bye, bye.’ Acting out these lines and, additionally, ‘Tired little toes, wiggling one to ten,’ for example, will promote language development and prove great fun for babies and young toddlers to mimic. . . . In the crowded field of bedtime books, this is a very sweet nighttime send-off for the littlest yawners.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Engaging . . . The text is just long enough to tie the ideas together nicely while keeping the forward motion of a picture book designed for the youngest children. In the winsome illustrations, a racially diverse group of babies engages in activities such as crawling, reaching for bubbles, and waving to a bird. . . . Each doublepage spread shows a different child interacting with a parent, grandparent, sibling, or other caregiver (even a family dog).” —Booklist
