Harriet Ziefert is the author of more than two hundred books for children. The mother of two and the grandmother of four, she lives in Lincoln, Massachusetts, and Maplewood, New Jersey. Elliot Kreloff is an illustrator and graphic designer. He lives in Harlem, New York, with his partner, his daughter, and his two dogs, Rainbow and TicTac. This is his first picture book.From Booklist:
PreS. Some parents advocate "cosleeping" with infants and toddlers to strengthen family bonds; this book, however, emerges from the opposite (and perhaps more widespread) perspective on kids in the marital bed. As evening falls, a mom and dad first tuck in pets, then tenderly bid Charlie and his infant sister good-night. But seconds later a forlorn Charlie appears outside of Mommy and Daddy's closed door: "I want to sleep in YOUR bed!" Even after both parents gently reason with him, Charlie still can't fall asleep--but instead of making another fuss, he plays a pretending game that helps him to relax. Parents striving for independent sleeping arrangements will appreciate Charlie's modeling of self-soothing techniques, while Kreloff's childlike crayon-and-collage artwork, which casts Charlie and his family as charming anthropomorphic beagles, helps soften the somewhat uncompromising message. A calm, direct presentation of an issue affecting many families. Jennifer Mattson
