Hi! I'm Anita. I was born in 1961 in The Netherlands. My entire life, I have loved reading. As a child, I could spend hours thumbing through books, looking at the pictures and hoping I could one day make such beautiful illustrations myself.

Editorial Reviews

A "yawner" in the best sense, this parade of sleepyheads isn't just a series of variations on the same motion-it offers a mix of repetition and low-key interactive surprises... .Irresistibly somniferous." - KIRKUS REVIEWS - starred!"All the animals - including the snake and the hippo - are tired and YAWNING in this fun-to-read flap book. I love the colorful illustrations, and the simple text is not so repetitive that it can't be read again and again. It's perfect as a bedtime story for those little ones who resist the pull of the pillow. Trust me - you'll find yourself yawning, too!" - Barb Bassett, Red Balloon Bookshop"The art is colorful and engaging and the simple text has a defined focus. A quick story and exercise, perfect for nap or bed-time sharing."- School Library Journal"Children can make ... animals yawn on the subsequent pages, and the effect is just as goofily charming each time. Finally, it's the child's turn to yawn and go to sleep, piled up with all of the sleepy animals. Resistance (to yawning) is futile." - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY"A well-illustrated, well-told repetitive-pattern book is worth its weight in gold in a classroom of beginning readers, and this one fills the bill perfectly... .The repetition offers great support for fledgling readers, and the illustrations answer any remaining questions they might have. This book is right up there with the royalty of pattern books such as Bill Martin Jr.'s Brown Bear, Brown Bear (Holt, 1996) and Janet and Allan Ahlberg's Each Peach Pear Plum (Puffin, 1986). Delightful anduseful." - School Library Journal (on WHOSE HAT IS THAT?) "Amazing... absolutely recommend for read-alouds or just for the pure joy of it." - Fab Book Reviews"
