The animals sleep standing up, lying down, in a tree, on the water and on your iPad. Adapted from the children’s book, "I See the Animals Sleeping: A Bedtime Story," this app uses narration and richly detailed hand drawn illustrations to show children the different sleep habits of animals around the world. The animals featured in this book will spark children’s imagination, from familiar animals such as the tiger or fox to more unusual creates like the sloth or platypus.
