Two children’s picture books published by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) in 2011 are available at the Children’s Museum of Manhattan. The Animals Sleep: A Bedtime Book of Biomes and I See the Animals Sleeping: A Bedtime Story emphasize the importance of sleep for both animals and children.
The books are written in rhyme and feature colorful illustrations. They explore the sleep habitats of various animals, from the familiar to the more exotic. In all cases, children are encouraged to get a good night sleep. The Children’s Museum of Manhattan is currently exhibiting “EatSleepPlay™: Building Health Every Day.”
