About the Author

Elizabeth Provost lives in Modesto, California, with her husband, Richard. She has three grown-up children and two grandchildren. Ten Little Sleepyheads is her first book. Donald Saaf is the illustrator of many highly acclaimed books for children, including Elemenopeo by Harriet Ziefert. He lives in Vermont with his family.


PreS-In this bedtime countdown, rhyming couplets describe how 10 tired insects prepare for a night's rest ("Ten little sleepyheads/talking to their toys./One falls asleep/in the middle of the noise"). The usual routine ensues as the creatures reach for a snack, play peek-a-boo, beg for a book, and take a bath before drifting off to sleep, one by one. The countdown begins all over again as the last little bug remains wide awake. Colorful acrylic paintings convey the action and depict highly personified insects including a firefly, a red-and-black beetle, a bumblebee, a winged desert termite, and a slug moth caterpillar, all of which are identified on the endpapers. Although the book is a bit cutesy, youngsters will delight in looking for the odd one out on each page and enjoy the ending.-Sally R.
