Sleep Time Stories: The Adventures of Pee Wee (Volume 1) Paperback – August 16, 2013
Top Customer Reviews
A half-century later, experts know a great deal more about the crucial importance of children’s stories. In his “Preface” to Sleep Time Stories: The Adventures of Pee Wee,” Dr. Edward Ritvo, a retired Professor of Child Psychiatry at UCLA Medical School and an internationally recognized expert in the area of child development, explains the distinction and importance of “Sleep Time Stories.” Ritvo writes that unlike “Bedtime Stories” which might be read at night when many other things might be happening in the home, a “Sleep Time Story” should only be read when a youngster is “in bed, eyes closed and all ready to fall asleep”
Dr. Ritvo says it is during this pre-sleep period when parents can truly dedicate their full attention to their children that essential bonding and emotional learning can take place. He also writes about the importance of “providing a solid emotional foundation” for children in building their “sense of self-worth and their ability to give and receive love.” And Dr. Ritvo details in his preface about how best to use these depending on the children’s age and development.Read more ›

The stories are only a few pages in length and a parent could read the entire book to a child during the course of one week. Pee Wee has some pretty amazing adventures and meet a huge variety of creatures, especially for being such a tiny ant. There isn't anything particularly outstanding about these stories, but there is a cuteness factor to them and younger children will probably be eager to listen about the different ADVENTURES OF PEE WEE.
Pee Wee is a very little ant. In this collection of adventures he manages to engage his friends in situations that are at first fun, then challenging and finally, rewarding.
In PEE WEE AND THE PEANUT BUTTER SANDWICH Pee Wee and his friends butterball and snowflake have an encounter with a peanut butter jar, delicious at first to eat spilled peanut butter, but when the person comes into the kitchen and retrieves the spilled bottle, Pee Wee and his friends end up in a sandwich placed in a school lunch box. They manage to escape and make their way back home on a floating on a leaf down the river. In PEE WEE, BABY BLUEBIRD, AND KITTY KAT in which Pee Wee hears a baby bluebird crying having fallen while trying to fly and manages to convince a kitty to don a bluebird costume to rescue the baby bluebird and place it back in its tree nest. On these stories go, never repeating except for Pee Wee, but the joy I the way Dr. Ritvo has written them - allowing pauses to ask questions for the child hearing the story and thus becoming involved. This makes bedtime stories therapeutic as well as very entertaining. Dr. Ritvo has accomplished his mission! Grady Harp, May 14
