Book Excerpt: 
. . .Shall fly and flutter round about your bed.

Edmund Spenser.
IX. Care-charming Sleep, thou easer of all woes,
Brother to Death, sweetly thyself dispose
On this afflicted prince; fall like a cloud
In gentle showers; give nothing that is loud
Or painful to his slumbers,—easy, sweet
And as a purling stream, thou son of Night,
Pass by his troubled senses; sing his pain
Like hollow murmuring wind or silver rain,
Into this prince gently, oh gently, slide
And kiss him into slumbers like a bride.

John Fletcher.
X. God hath set
Labor and rest, as day and night, to men
Successive, and the timely dew of sleep
Now falling with soft, slumberous weight inclines
Our eyelids.

John Milton.
XI. Sleep dwell upon thine eyes, peace in thy breast'
Would I were sleep and peace so sweet to rest

Look I didn't like Dr. Seuss that much when I was a kid, and I don't like him that much as an adult, and I don't like reading this aloud to my 4-year old cos, like every Dr. Seuss book, it goes ON AND ON AND ON. I like the sound of Seuss's rhymes, he has a great sense of rhythm and cadence and all t

I wish I was in this book.

Maybe the tedium is the point, if you're trying to coax a stubborn little one into sleep?

One page did have an unusual charm,

I loved this one! Made me want to go to bed in the middle of the day. Goodnight, guys!

I found this one to be a very dull read. Then again, maybe that was the idea all along. This is definitely not one of the man's best books.

Ironically... a sleeper book!


A yawn is quite catching, you see. Like a cough.

It just takes one yawn to start other yawns off.

I dare you to read this charming tale and not yawn!

It’s true! I yawned and I am not shamed to admit it!

Obviously that’s the very idea of

A book about sleep - what a curious thing! After reading this book what dreams will it bring? (Sorry, I just couldn't resist).

Warning: This book should be read in bed! It's such a cute book, even though there's not really a point except to point out all the creatures sleeping, and implying the reader should be sleeping too! What I love about it is it's classic Dr. Seuss, and it's great! How in the world did this man not on

I don't know why, but I don't know how many times I yawned when reading this book?! :-O
Whatever it be, it's a good sleep book.. ;)

If I have to read this book one more time, my head is going to explode. I give it five stars because my daughter dearly, dearly loves it.

You know what I like about Dr. Seuss? Sometimes it's not about "teaching" anything—it's just about enjoying a good, toe-tapping rhyme, and my child can't get enoug
