If you have a toddler similar to mine, you have to battle with them at bed or nap time. I love sleep. Sleep is good. I remember it fondly & I wish that my daughter enjoyed it as much as her mommy and daddy do. Bedtime is an anxiety raising, stressful time of the evening when my daughter kicks, cries and fights tooth and nail when it is time to start her bedtime routine. It is truly exhausting.
The Snicky Guide To Falling Asleep is a book written for a child similar to mine. Author Pamela Ann Will wrote The Snicky Guide To Falling Asleep because her niece has a toddler son who doesn’t like to sleep. The niece and her husband were always so tired! About the same time, she adopted a rescue dog who loves to sleep and started taking pictures of him. The book is a result of Snicky’s uncanny ability to sleep anywhere and anytime. She thought he could serve as a role model for children since he makes sleeping look fun.
This book is truly adorable. It is a photographic journey following Snicky the dog in various sleep situations.

What did my little book critic think?
She loved it! She affectionately refers to it as “cute puppy book”. She enjoyed pointing out all of the stuffed animals and toys that Snicky napped with. Here she is showing me the giraffe.
Duke enjoyed it as well & even took a cue from Snicky and got a little shut eye.
