In this rhythmic springtime tale, animals of all kinds get ready to sleep. As the sun sets, fish find a place to hide, cats curl up, and sheep huddle in their wool coats. Still, not everyone is asleep . . . the minnow, the kitten, the lamb and a little boy are all awake (but not for long ).

Praise For Who's Awake in Springtime?

Praise for Who's Awake in Springtime?: “The popeyed cartoon faces are appealing, while the clever compositions add a ‘look-and-find’ element. A playful and inviting bedtime tale.”—Booklist “In this cumulative tale, baby animals stay awake as their grown-ups go down for the evening. …Chollat’s playful and detailed illustrations will have readers taking a closer look to see if they can spot the boy in each spread. The repeated refrain of “Not I” is perfect for read-alouds and will surely encourage those listening to chime in.”—School Library Journal
