About the Author

Robert Kraus, New Yorker cartoonist and cover artist, created numerous classic picture books for very young children, including Leo the Late Bloomer and Milton the Early Riser.
Jose Aruego and Ariane Dewey have illustrated many books together -- he draws the outlines and designs the pages; she paints the illustrations. Aruego, a native of the Philippines, was a lawyer before becoming an illustrator, and now lives in New York City. Dewey was born in Chicago and also lives in New York City.

 About The Book

Milton the panda bear can't sleep. There is a big wind storm which re-arranges all of the animals in the land, so to keep himself occupied, Milton puts them all back where they belong. By the time all of the animals wake up, Milton is so tired, he finally falls asleep.

Colorful pictures and a good story to read, especially at bedtime. 5 stars!


As some of you know, I just got back from visiting my newborn granddaughter. And as you can see, sometimes she's asleep but other times... well, you know.

What have you tried to help babies fall asleep? I think motion and music helps.
