Sweet Dreams: How Animals Sleep
By Kimiko Kajikawa
Review by: Yvonne
This awesome book is full of bright colorful photos! A great picture book for younger kids with very few words for early readers. Learn how orangutans sleep in a bed of leaves, How sharks sleep with their eyes open, and how chipmunks curl into a little ball. This book covers many different ways in which creatures sleep, including humans! All written in a rhythmic, poetic style, which makes it fun at the same time. For the advanced readers, teachers, and adults, the last three pages of this book go into much more detail on each of the animals in the book. For instance did you know that an orangutan
spends ten minutes every night building a nest out of leaves and branches, in the fork of a tall tree. Did you also know that horses usually stand up to sleep and when they do sleep standing they donít dream! All kinds of interesting facts can be found in this book to stimulate discussions with your younger ones and teach them something as well. I recommend this book for ages 0-8. This book has it all, bright pictures for the young ones, easy words for early readers, and educational facts for the older, more experienced readers. You canít go wrong with this one!
