Devin & Evan Sleep from 8-7

Devin & Evan Sleep From 8-7: Teaching Children the Importance of Sleep

Author: Whitney Roban, Ph.D.

Age range: 5-10

We have all seen the effects of not getting enough sleep – both in ourselves and our grands. The struggle is real. Devin and Evan are identical twins who are similar in every way, except Devin is a great sleeper and Evan is a terrible sleeper. This book emphasizes how this difference in sleep patterns follows the twins through the day. As the boys sit in class or try out for the basketball team, Evan’s lack of sleep makes for a rough road for him.

child sleepingThe book uses rhymes and simple pictures to drive home the importance of sleep in our lives, and how it is critical for physical and emotional well being and success in school. Happiness begins with a good night’s sleep.

This book will help families who have children struggling with:
*following sleep rules at bedtime and refusing to go to sleep
*waking in the middle of the night
*rising too early in the morning
*refusing to nap
*sleeping alone at night and in their own bed

Most adults realize they need an adequate amount of sleep each night, but this book will drive that lesson home with kids through examples they will easily understand. So if you have a stubborn grand who resists their nightly slumber, grab this book and solve their sleep problems.
