Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-6-Although this volume is filled with cartoon illustrations, the text is well written and full of factual information, covering topics such as REM sleep, nightmares, sleepwalking, dreams, hibernation, and sleep disorders. The text is loosely organized by topic (stages of sleep, tossing and turning, etc.). The writing style is breezy and conversational, but focused enough to be complete and accurate. Page backgrounds vary in washed-out primary colors with plenty of illustrations of snoozing people in pajamas and animals in nightcaps.

Review

Curious children will find plenty to interest them and answer their questions.

The writing style is breezy and conversational, but focused enough to be complete and accurate.

Each page of the book discusses an aspect of sleep (e.g., yawning and dreams) of topical interest, illustrates the concept with a cartoon, and has a box of short text that addresses the topic. This is a captivating and informative presentation. The book is filled with interesting facts such as details of animals’ sleep; the loudest snore; the longest period of wakefulness; and the sleep habits of some famous people - Einstein, Churchill, and Edison.

Highly recommended

My 10-year old son and I are always on the lookout for non-fiction books with the right amount of information, illustration and humor. This one nails it! He was fascinated to learn about the quirks of sleep, and I learned some things too. Terrific!
