Overview
Discover the many ways animals sleep in this fascinating and beautiful showcase of animals at rest.
How do animals sleep? Curious young minds will be fascinated to discover the amazing variety of ways the animals featured in this picture book sleep. Some sleep nearly all the time while others hardly at all; some sleep underwater while others standing on one leg; some sleep in snow while others in the baking hot desert. . . How Animals Sleep invites inquiry and comparison between the animals and their sleep behaviors plus reflection on how we as humans get rest.
Gorgeous, bold block print style illustrations by Marie Stumpfov accompany the informative text from naturalist/author Jiř Dvořk. The large trim size provides an immersive reading experience. Young students of animal behavior may extend the conversation into topics of where the animals live, what they eat, and other related activities. Or they may just be tempted to demonstrate their own abilities to sleep after the final pages come to a close.
Animals featured: Pelicans, Parrotfish, Bumblebees, Sea Otters, Seals, Polar Bears, Flamingoes, Hazel Dormice, Giraffes, Cats, Green Tree Pythons, Foxes, Peacocks, Camels, Dogs, Common Swifts.
