All About Sleep from A to Zzzz

Sunday, January 10th, 2010

about sleepBy Elaine Scott, 58 pages.  Grades 5-8

Have you ever wondered why you sometimes feel like you are falling as you go to sleep and wake with a jerk?  Did you ever wonder what would happen to you if you didn’t sleep?  Or, why we have nightmares?  The author explores the science behind sleep walking, dreams, sleeping disorders and the stages of sleep in this nonfiction title.

Connections:  For other books on sleep, try reading Sleep:  The Mysterious Third of Your Life by Jonathon Kastner, Dead on Their Feet:  Teen Sleep Deprivation and Its Consequences by Joan Esherick, and Sleep and Dreams by Alvin Silverstein.
