Upcoming Book Release from Past Mentee Tracy Gold

Friday, 5 February 2021  |  Posted by Rochelle Karina

Celebrating success stories and book releases is one of the highlights of doing this blog. Join us in congratulating 2015 and 2016 Pitch Wars alum Tracy Gold on her upcoming boardbook release. Tracy is running a preorder campaign for this book to help babies in need build their libraries. If you send her your preorder receipt or library request, she’ll donate a book to Baltimore charity ShareBaby.


Sleepy Mommy,
Sleepy Daddy,
Sleepy little dog.
Everyone’s sleepy
But the baby,
Yawn, yawn, yawn.

After a long day, the whole family is ready to hit the hay . . . except for the baby. Why is it so hard to get the baby to sleep? With hilarious illustrations that might hit a little too close to home for new parents, Everyone’s Sleepy but the Baby is the perfect, true-to-life bedtime story that will help even the most reluctant sleeper wind down for bed.

“My new favorite bedtime read, Everyone’s Sleepy but the Baby has it all: pleasant rhyme and rhythm, cute illustrations, a plot every parent can relate to, and most important at bedtime, brevity! I smiled the whole way through.”
—Amanda Rawson Hill, author of You’ll Find Me and Pitch Wars alum/mentor 

Available March 2 from Familius

Signed copies are available if you leave a note in the “order comments” section at The Children’s Bookstore.
