BABIES CAN SLEEP ANYWHERE by Lisa Wheeler. Illus. by Carolina Buzio.  New York: Abrams Appleseed, 2017.  32p.  ISBN 978-141972536-4 hc. $14.95     PreS     E PIC

Comparing a range of animals to a sleeping baby, "babies can sleep anwhere" becomes a predictable line on every fourth page.  It's amazing how many words rhyme with "where" and can be written into descriptive sentences about animals.  The alternate pages have their own rhyme schemes, giving the story an easy-to-read cadence.  Buzio's illustrations are boldly drawn in muted colors, making it easy to identify each featured animal - most of them pictured with babies of their own.  Parents and teachers will enjoy reading and re-reading this book to preschoolers.
