Snoozefest: The Surprising Science of Sleep

Kids Can. Sept. 2021. 80p. Tr $16.99. ISBN 9781525301490.
Gr 5-8–An exciting exploration of sleep. Part history, part science, part advice manual, this slim volume packs a lot of sleep-related information into its pages, with additional information in the bibliography, resources, and index. Kyi’s informal and casual writing, even when discussing serious science, is accompanied by Goulet’s bright, painterly illustrations. It reads like a fun textbook: dense material wrapped in a popping package. Readers may find Snoozefest a resource for school research projects, or even spot-read snippets to answer typical questions: How many hours of sleep do I need? What do I do if I can’t sleep? How can I have better sleep? This might be most useful in libraries where STEAM research attracts young patrons to its stacks.
VERDICT A fun choice for browsable nonfiction shelves and reports.
