Take the kids on a break with Sleepy Safari and the Restful Readers

K. Ryan Henisey, teacher and award winning artist, reads Sleepy Safari, the first in a series of sleepy-time readers for young families.

Rather than ducks or sheep, count a safari for your sleep.

The happy animals on Sleepy Safari rest under a magical sky of smiling stars. This bedtime book is great for children of all ages and encourages restful sleep.

Read along with the gentle rhyming ballad to induce happy dreams.

Take A Rest in the Dreamy Desert
