2 Children’s Books for Festival of Sleep Day

To mark the funny January 3rd holiday, Festival of Sleep Day, I’m featuring two children’s books by Kally Mayer. Then I think I’ll go back to bed for a few more zzz’s of my own.

2 Children's Books for Festival of Sleep Day

Stop Snoring Grandpa!
Published November 3, 2014
Pages 34

My Review:
Stop Snoring Grandpa is a rhyming picture book that tells the story of a dear grandfather who snores so loudly he keeps the entire neighborhood awake. But when grandpa goes into the hospital the family, as well as their neighbors, learn that peace and quiet can seem very loud. The lonely feeling of missing a loved one is brought out poignantly in this book.

The Day My Mommy Slept InThe Day My Mommy Slept In!

My review:
What a cute rhyming book that makes its way through the start of a very bad day. But the lesson at the end is to hang in there, even on bad days, for something good will happen that makes the entire day go better.
