What I loved: The artwork in this book is lovely! The colors are really great, with animals that pop and a really cool, artistic vibe. The story is simple, but will make young children giggle as all the animals tell Sam that they are trying to sleep. When the answer comes as to why Sam can't sleep, even more silliness ensues. Children who have trouble sleeping sometimes will understand how Sam feels and enjoy his story.
Although there are lots of dark backgrounds, the font is really clear and easy to read, making this a good choice for reading aloud. The amount of text on each page is great for young children, so it would work for a range of picture book readers.
Final verdict: With fantastic art and a silly story, SAM CAN'T SLEEP is a fun picture book read. Recommend for toddlers through elementary school aged readers.
