Review: Everyone’s Awake by Colin Meloy

I picked Everyone’s Awake up for storytime for the first time tonight, and Middle Brother made me read it three times in a row, so I’d say it’s a pretty great picture book.

The illustrations are bright and eye-catching. They’re also unusual. There was a whole lot of pointing and “What’s that?” happening. I always enjoy that in our reading together.

It’s a rhyming book, and unsurprisingly, since the author is a musician, it’s very rhythmic. But the words will surprise you. There’s mention of someone on the phone with the cops, and a coup d’etat. As an adult, I also really enjoyed this book.

Everyone’s Awake comes out March 3, 2020, and I definitely recommend it to everyone for bedtime reading.
