Shhhhhh! Everybody's Sleeping

Shhhhh! Everybody's Sleeping by Julie Markes

In addition to being a good, standard, bedtime picture book, I like this book for a community-helper theme because it shows the reader that the community-helpers in their lives go to sleep just like they do.

"The teacher is sleeping. School's done for the day. The librarian is sleeping. Books put away. The policeman is sleeping. Everything is all right. The fireman is sleeping. No sirens tonight."

It goes on to show a doctor, grocer, postman, farmer, baker, gardener, zookeeper, and president. 

"And you know who SHOULD be sleeping, just like the sun? Good night, sleep tight, my sweet little one.
