"In prolific author Mora's latest, grandmother tucks in her three grandchildren, kissing them good night and reminding them that the animals, both inside and outside the house-squirrels, bunnies, birds, kitten, and dog-are sleeping already … [A] charming and tender-hearted addition to the bedtime bookshelf, and it should prove popular for both bookstores and libraries."—Criticas
"In this second helping of Mora’s My Family/Mi Familia easy-reader series, an abuelita prepares her three grandchildren for bed with soft kisses and whispers about sleeping animals. The repetitive text—along with the soothing, slightly disproportionate illustrations of a happy Latino family—is perfect for young readers. Librarians will find this a welcome addition to their collection of easy-readers in Spanish or English. Recommended."—REFORMA Newsletter
