When wide-awake Lucy can't fall asleep she . . . Climbs out of bed,
Wiggles her fingers,
Wiggles her toes,
Scratches itches,
Itches scratches,
Buttons buttons,
Blows her nose.
But Lucy still can't sleep.  Amy Schwart's gentle and reassuring story, along with her warm and comforting paintings, is sure to beguile restless children.

Schwartz’s deceptively simple paintings and line-work deliver enough domestic details (a coiled hose, a stray doll, dirty laundry, scattered bath toys) and slightly skewed perspectives to keep readers engaged, looking into every corner of the family home (just like the nomadic Lucy).
