And J.J. Slept - Cover
And J.J. Slept
Loretta Garbutt, Kids Can Press 2022
A social worker brings baby J.J. home to his new, active, loud, multi-racial family who are delighted to welcome him in. He is content and sleeps though all the noise of this busy family while the parents keep trying to shush the children. But when his new siblings all go off on their own activities – J.J. cries and cries! Sleep comes back only when the noisy older kids come home. This is funny, loving and turns the usual story ("be quiet - the baby is sleeping") upside down.
