Customer Book Reviews

Great Children's Book


We loved the illustrations and fold out pages. The fold out pages were a great way to get the children to interact with the story. The children's favorite pages were the ones that were only the panda's eyes. These pages encouraged a great classroom discussion about the story. I love to here those wheels turning in their little minds. This book has good flow, great pictures and the kids really seemed to enjoy it. I received a complimentary copy of this book for reviewing purposes. Even so all opinions are my own. Thanks.

Great book for kids and adults alike


This cute book is a perfect bedtime story that your little ones will enjoy over and over again. Not only is the tale of Chengdu great for kids, but the incredibly detailed artwork will leave parents in awe! Be sure to check behind the cover jacket for an extra special surprise! Recommended for all art and panda lovers!!!

is better than any sleeping pill


If you have a toddler in the household who has trouble getting to sleep this book, with its fold out pages, is better than any sleeping pill. Read it at bedtime and it should get the child in the mood for sleep. It is a cute story with simple but cool illustrations.

Do Pandas Sleep?


I bought this book for my grandchildren, and they loved it. I was going to keep it at my home, but they were so happy with it that they took the book with them to their home! My grandchildren love seeing and learning about animals.

For the insomniac pre-schooler and everyone else


Some preschool persons find bedtime unwinding difficult. Chengdu, for example, tries everything possible in beautiful tri-color illustrations on pages which drop down or pull out or fold over. This little panda's tale is perfect for helping little people transition to bedtime.

I also like the illustrations and how once he finds other bears ...


This is darling. Especially since there are very few of this bear left. It illustrates the feeling a lot of us have when we can't go to sleep. I also like the illustrations and how once he finds other bears to snuggle with, he drops of to sleep.

An adorable bedtime story!


Try as he might, Chengdu the panda could not, would not fall asleep. He tosses and turns, stretches and scrunches, but it's no use. He's eyes stay wide and sleep will not come. Finally, Chengdu climbs up and up to find the perfect spot... atop he brother Yuan. Now, everyone is sleeping... except Yuan. The expressive illustrations of Chengdu and his brother Yuan, coupled with interactive fold-out pages, make this book a winner!

A very sweet Panda story.


A new story for me, but I found it to be very charming Illustrations were interesting and I think would be delightful for young children.

Great bedtime story!


This was such a sweet little story. Little Panda Chengdu tries everything to fall asleep! He tosses and turns and even hangs upside down! Until finally he finds a special way to sleep. Parents will recognize that Chengdu just needed some love so much like our little ones do at bedtime to finally achieve sleep. This book is visually beautiful as well. The use of black and white with just a pop of color on all the pages is simply gorgeous! This book also features a few special pages including one fold down page. *I received a copy of this book for review purposes - as always my opinions are my own. The entire review can be seen at*

This story was missing a page or two at the ...


This story was missing a page or two at the end, so the ending didn't make sense. I became familiar with this story because I checked this book out from the library and read it to my kids every night for 6 weeks, so I know how the story was supposed to go, and it was definitely missing something at the end.
