Shhh! The baby's asleep / JaNay Brown-Wood ; illustrated by Elissambura.

Brown-Wood, JaNay, (author.). Elissambura, (illustrator.).


Celebrate the silliness that comes with a big family in this playful read-aloud about a big brother, a sleeping baby, and a very noisy family. Baby is finally asleep. But everyone is much too loud! Can Mom, Daddy, Grammy, Pop Pop, Shae, Dante, Rover the dog, and even the neighbor keep quiet? Just when they think they can rest-oh no. The baby's awake. One savvy little narrator knows just the way to make his baby sister fall back asleep: by reading her a good book! A hilarious cast of characters will keep readers laughing throughout this amusing celebration of early literacy and intergenerational family relationships.
