Everyone Sleeps by Marcellus Hall


In "Everyone Sleeps," not everyone sleeps. Author Marcellus Hall takes the reader on a journey to visit all the animals that are asleep. A little pug named Conrad seems to be the only member of the household who can't sleep.

Many different kinds of animals are portrayed asleep -- from sea otters to tigers to sheep. The prose/verse is catchy and the book is great as a read-aloud.

"Look at this! It's a herd of sheep...and every one is fast asleep."

By the time Conrad gets back to his house, he notices that another member of the family is awake. And the ending is one that kids will enjoy.

This would be a great book for kids who have trouble going to sleep. It will reassure them that sometimes, everyone has trouble falling asleep -- and that's ok.
