Sleep Tight, Anna Banana! by Dominique Roques -- ADVISABLE

Roques, Dominique Sleep Tight, Anna Banana! Illustrated by Alexis Dormal. PICTURE BOOK. First Second, June 17, 2014. $15.99. Content: G.

Anna's stuffed animals are ready to sleep, but bossy Anna insists on keeping the light on -- and keeping her toys close -- as she reads more of her book. When Anna finally decides she's ready to snooze, her stuffed animals turn the tables on her by keeping her awake instead.

Anna Banana is a cute story about showing respect for others, and could make a good introduction to discussions about the Golden Rule. The illustrations are lively and often humorous, and they accompany the story very well.

Pre-K, EL (K-3) -- ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Caryn
