Review: Babies Can Sleep Anywhere

A delightful, rhyming board book, perfect for little hands and little ears, Babies Can Sleep Anywhere will warm your heart and make you smile.

The story explores all the different ways animals like to sleep: in trees, in lairs, upside down, in a den. So many different animals sleep in so many different ways, but babies… well babies can sleep anywhere. 

With soothing repetition, the story is the perfect bedtime tale for tired cherubs, but I love that it also subtly teaches about the animal world as it calms audiences. 

It also shines a beautiful light on different family members and how both mums and dads play a key role in helping babies get to sleep.

The stunning illustrations are engaging and addictive, and each turn of the page will have you smiling at cuteness overload. The colours are both bright and soothing at the same time — perfect for little ones and perfect for bedtime! 

This is a special little book for babies everywhere. With a beautiful visual narrative that celebrates diversity of our animal kingdom, as well as diversity of people, it’s the perfect board book to give as a gift or to purchase for yourself just because!
