Praise & Kudos

Read what others are saying about Sleeping Bear Press:

Ajhar tracks the development of this Common Core–friendly reading preference in comical scenes in which schoolmarmish Lou [No Pirates Allowed Said Library Lou] dances balletically among piles of books as the exaggeratedly humongous pirate grows more and more absorbed in his reading.
—Kirkus Reviews
This excellent picture book [G is for Golden: A California Alphabet] is packed with information.
—San Francisco Chronicle
As a former school librarian and school librarian of the year for the state of North Carolina, I heartily endorse this book [D is for Democracy]. Not only does it explain our government in simple terms for young children, it also contains excellent facts and ideas for older children that they can use in research or other projects. The illustrations are also wonderful. This book (in multiple copies) should be in every school library in the country!
—Vicki Stanfield, Moravian Book and Gift Shop
When I was a young boy my history book looked like it was 1,000 pages long and a tough read. Here's a kid's book [D is for Democracy] even an adult can read, enjoy, and learn from, that actually explains democracy so simply and effectively, you mean it when you shout out, 'What a country!'
—Regis Philbin
The Discover America State by State series educates children with enough originality and intelligence to keep parents and teachers on their toes as well.
—Pam Pulner ( Reviewer)
If kids age 6-10 don't know baseball when they begin [H is for Home Run], they'll be experts by the time they finish.
—Chicago Sun-Times
If we could only have one more day of the week, would that make us more conscious of the opportunities missed? This beautifully illustrated book [Someday: Is Not a Day of the Week] is a needed reminder of what we all know is important but, sadly, may sometimes forget.
—Lois Proctor , The Bookseller
[Saving Samantha] is a wonderful new children's picture book with a heartwarming and important environmental message. Gijsbert's artistic talent and Robbyn's warm prose make this a beautiful book for children of all ages!
—Coryn Briggs, Schuler Books & Music
...Brad Herzog hits a grand slam. He reaches beyond the obvious ... to enrich [H is for Home Run] with details about the sport's history, rules and heroes.
—Judy Green, Sacramento Bee
D is for Democracy is the little book that should: Be a part of every child's library, be required reading for every member of Congress and inspire every American to get involved in promoting the uniquely American values that shine through all the letters on every page of this wonderful book.
