Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Paula McMillen
“What would you do if you never had to sleep?” Of course all would love to have more time in the day for our favorite activities, but the authors identify several very important reasons that we need to sleep. People fall asleep in stages until reaching a deep sleep where they dream. Sleep allows minds the time to sort and store information and experiences into memory. The relative physical rest allows the body to grow during certain life stages and to repair itself. Conversely, insufficient sleep leads to poor mental and emotional functioning, physical exhaustion and vulnerability to illness. Generally speaking, babies need the most sleep, followed by children, teens, and adults. Readers will find factual information here about brain structures and chemistry, sleep cycles, nightmares, and problems with sleeping. Concrete suggestions are offered for improving the quality of sleep. There are abundant visuals to illustrate concepts discussed in the text. A glossary—unfortunately without a pronunciation guide—follows the text, as do a brief bibliography, web resources, and an index. Recommended for middle school libraries needing materials on the subject. Reviewer: Paula McMillen, Ph.D.; Ages 10 to 15.
