Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book provides a complete, perhaps exhaustive, treatment of its topic for a high school audience in five chapters. It is a textbook, not an informative pleasure reader, due to its scientific prose, Spartan illustrations, and topical treatment. Chapters cover how and why we sleep, amounts of sleep, sleep and the brain, sleep disorders, and dreaming. The book is highly informative, probably containing much more information than the casual teen reader would desire. This would make it a useful book for high school students learning research techniques, except for a serious drawback. The text itself neither contains footnotes nor indicates the presence of endnotes, although a highly unorthodox "notes" section at the end of the book lists page numbers and citations. However, this format does not allow the reader to know what material on a given page is covered by the citation. Another weakness is the unattractive, repetitive graphics and layout. 2006, Twenty-First Century Books, Ages 13 to 17.
—Deborah Dysart-Gale
VOYA - Alice F. Stern
What is sleep? How does missing sleep affect the body? Why does one sleep through some noises and not others? Is snoring anything to worry about? Why does one dream? These and other questions are presented in a logical order and answered in clear, concise text that is accessible to a wide age range. Included are such issues as how sleep works, the biology of sleep, the brain, and the role of neurotransmitters. Brynie discusses sleep at different age levels, while particularly addressing her adolescent audience. The author cites authoritative research and studies as examples. Diagrams are clear and complement the text, but some illustrations are peripheral. An example is a photo of Brahms, included because he might have suffered from sleep apnea. Included are an excellent glossary, substantial sources for further information (including books, articles, Web sites, and agencies), and source notes. This supporting material is a model of good scholarship for students. Like the author's other titles in this series-101 Questions About Your Skin (Lerner, 2000), 101 Questions About Reproduction (2006), and four others-this title will be very useful for school projects or for readers interested in the topic and should be available in public and school libraries serving ages twelve and up.
