Betsy Snyder's ( smile-inducing art can be found on everything from social expressions products, board games, plush, decor, fabric, wallpaper, and of course--children's books! Betsy lives in northeast Ohio, where she enjoys cozying up to doodle with her art-loving family of four and venturing out to schools and libraries to encourage kids to share their stories and chase their dreams.


"In a style reminiscent of Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault's Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, illustrated by Lois Ehlert, each child romps, rolls, and races to bed. . . . This spirited family is full of personality, each child with a different stuffed animal and pajama set and a unique journey to bedtime. The illustrations capture the bustle of a house bursting with children, from the chaos of the dinner table and children slipping on carpets and overturning houseplants in their haste to a series of bathtubs full of activity. . . . The rhyming text bounces along, an easy read-aloud, with rich vocabulary like impish, jazzy, and scramble making for a fun, silly, relatable read with detailed, appealing illustrations. . . . A playful approach to teaching kids the alphabet." --Kirkus Reviews
