Seuss's Sleep Book
By Dr. Seuss
Review by: Angela
What a story!
One that will definitely NOT put you to sleep! This story covers
all aspects of sleep and then some. It starts out with a spoof on
yawning; how it starts with the yawn of one tiny bug and spreads through
the land, sending everyone to bed. The Biffer-Baum birds begin
building their nest as the Herk-Heimer Sisters start their tooth
brushing session. The milkman stopped delivering, taking no
midnight calls, and the stilt-walkers and Hinkle-Horn Honkers have hung
up their things. Every where creatures are falling asleep and the
numbers are growing as the Collapsible Frink, collapsed in a heap.
There are sleep-talkers and walkers and snorers galore and the loudest
of all snores in a three gallon pail! They are asleep in all kinds
of beds, even the worst ones of all at the Zwieback Motel. They
have their alarms set; those that go tock-tick and also those that only
work if they are bit! They dream as they sleep on the steps and on
floors. I guess we should check the Who's Asleep Score.
" When you put out your light, then the number will be ninety-nine
zillion nine trillion and three! Good Night."
an enchanting story, so typical of Seuss. It is a little lengthy,
so I would recommend this for 4-6 year olds.
