Picture Book Review: Snoozapalooza

Snoozapalooza by Kimberlee  Gard

5 out of 5 stars

This counting story follows ten animals as they snuggle into a nice warm den to hibernate through the winter. The mouse falls asleep, and is soon joined by a snail, squirrel, hedgehog, mole, rabbit, and more, until they are all snoring together in a big heap.

The text introduces each animal, and then has a repetitive rhyme that counts up the animals and describes how the animal den is growing from a tiny heap to a massive heap of snoozing animals all snoring together. The repetition is perfectly designed for young children, who love repetition and can learn to count and read along.

This is such a snuggly book! The gentle story is perfect for bedtime. There is also a lot of silliness that makes the book fun. I was laughing at the cute animals and the charming ending.
I love the sweet illustrations. Every little animal is adorable and cute! I love the soft art style, and the beautiful scenes. When the rabbit yawned, I ACTUALLY yawned too! haha! That’s how powerful the suggestion of a yawn can be.

This whole book makes me want to snuggle into a warm blanket and take a nap! Lovely from start to finish.
