So Sleepy Story
In a sleepy sleepy house everything is so sleepy – until music drifts in through an open window. Chairs begin to rock, dishes begin to dance, and a sleepy boy opens his eyes to the revelry of the once-sleepy house. Then, softly, the music drifts out, and everything is sleepy sleepy once more.
With his soothing text and gentle, whimsical illustrations, Uri Shulevitz has created the ultimate sleepy sleepy bedtime story.
So Sleepy Story is a 2006 New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year.

While not my favorite of Shulevitz, it is worthy of a high honorable mention. The illusrations of a sleepy house are marvelous. Even the dishes are asleep. When soft musical notes float in the window, the sleepy items awake and tables dance, chairs rock and the house and items dance! Read full review

Fun simple story, lots of repetition of the word sleepy. A sleepy house, with sleepy dishes and sleepy chairs is very sleepy. Then music wakes up the sleepy house and the sleepy boy, but the music gets softer and the sleepy house goes back to sleep. Read full review
