With Sleep by your side, nothing is as terrifying as it seems.

Featuring stunning, atmospheric illustrations,  this beautiful story is the perfect book for getting little ones off to sleep at bedtime.


My Review:

Even as a little girl, I've always had vivid dreams that I can usually remember long after waking up.  I've also always been active in my sleep, and used to suffer from night terrors.  I don't have near as hard time sleeping as I used to; I'd fight sleep from fear of what I'd dream about.

My Friend Sleep is a hardback book that's perfect as a bedtime story for younger children.  It tells of a little girl who drifts off to sleep.  Her mind goes on adventures and dreams with her friend, Sleep.  Sleep is a translucent white figure with a soft face.  Sleep goes with the girl as she has dreams of imaginative scenarios.  The girl also comes across an ominous monster that could be a thing of nightmares, but finds out the monster isn't scary after all.  

The illustrations look like sketches and the majority of the pictures are done in black, orange, and blue colors.  This book depicts how dreams can be fun and far-fetched, and how things that may seem scary don't have to be.

Sleep? What is that? I will get any thing from 2-3 to 6 maybe 7. I do not have small kids at home or a stressful job; just don't sleep very well.

Thank you

Over the years I've had three different third shift jobs and my sleep has been wacky. I am more of a catnapper. I nap for two or three hours here and there. Daytime, nighttime, whenever the need strikes.
