Take a journey through the world’s diverse environments and see how the animals sleep. Adapted from the children’s book “The Animals Sleep: A Bedtime Book of Biomes” that I have illustrated back in 2011, this app explores the oceans, deserts and woodlands using poetic narration paired with my watercolor illustrations. From beavers, to zebras, to humpback whales, an eye-catching assortment of animals fills every scene.
This storybook app emphasizes the importance of sleep and teaches children about different sleep environments. Children will want to get a good night’s sleep when they see that a cozy bedroom is the perfect sleep environment for them :)!
This Free children’s apps was developed by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine to educate kids about the importance of sleep. The app has optional settings for children to read the stories at their own pace or have the stories read to them with audio.
The apps also include a coloring book, puzzle and quiz games to make learning fun.

I am ecstatic to announce that “Rubber Shoes…A Lesson in Gratitude/Los zapatos de goma…Una Lección de Gratitud ” has just been awarded A Moonbeam Children’s Book Award for best Spanish language book.
Thank you for your continued support and good wishes!
The Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards are intended to bring increased recognition to exemplary children’s books and their creators, and to celebrate children’s books and life-long reading. Each year’s entries are judged by expert panels of youth educators, librarians, booksellers, and book reviewers of all ages. Award recipients receive gold, silver and bronze medals and stickers depicting a mother and child reading and silhouetted by a full moon.
Many of our award-winning books encourage children to be generous and compassionate, to stand up to bullies, and to believe in fulfilling their dreams. The diversity of the winning publishers proves that promoting childhood literacy knows no boundaries, as medal-winners came not only from long-established publishers and university presses, but from small presses, foundations, and self-published entrepreneurs.
