As a child begins to fall asleep, she begins to wonder where wild animals sleep for the night and imagines a conversation with the wild creatures that gives her some answer. This, is the gentle premise of Sweet Dreams of the Wild, and original collection of poems by Rebecca Kai Dotlich that explores through richly detailed imagery how and where a variety of animals, birds, and insects like to sleep. The evocative colored-pencil illustrations by Katharine Dodge lend a warm, comforting glow to the book that will delight children as they engage in this imaginative exploration of the habitats of animals in their own backyards and beyond.

Rebecca Kai Dotlich is the author of Lemonade Sun, And Other Summer Poems. She lives in Carmel, Indiana.
Katharine Dodge's illustrations have appeared in many publications. She lives on a farm in northern Pennsylvania.
Ages 2^-5. Soothing, rhythmic poems explain where a variety of wild animals sleep. Echoing Bill Martin's Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? (1992), each poem begins with a question that repeats the name of the animal twice and asks, "Where do you sleep?" Each animal answers, concluding, "I cuddle up tight / with sweet dreams of the wild, / and THAT'S where I sleep, / sleepy child!" The animal assortment includes a reptile, insects, and mammals, with several examples, such as squirrels and caterpillars, familiar enough that children might have wondered about their sleeping habits. Dodge's cozy, shimmering colored-pencil illustrations match Dotlich's quiet, tender mood well, and children will especially enjoy discovering some of the more camouflaged creatures. Susan Dove Lempke
