How wild could a child's imagination get? In a new picture book for children, "Lions Sleep Too" (published by Xlibris) author and loving mother Joyce Shepherd demonstrates a possibility that was inspired by her son's remarkable intellectual playfulness.

"Lions Sleep Too" is a fun rhyming book that follows a little boy whose imagination goes wild. When his parents thought he was fast asleep in his room, they unexpectedly hear an animal sound. Alarmed as they are curious, they find out that he is on an adventure in his mind. Each time he becomes a different animal, his parents come in to calm him down and put him back to bed.

"Children will enjoy hearing and making the different animal sounds in this book," says Shepherd. "They can play a guessing game about what the next animal will be, and the repeating rhyming words will engage readers of all ages."

Delightfully entertaining to the ears as it is to the eyes — it abounds with fetching illustrations to stimulate cognitive vision, "Lions Sleep Too" celebrates the limitless wonder of a child's imagination.
