Sam thinks he is the ultimate sleep fighter, that is, until his buddy Snoozby teaches him about the value of a good night’s rest. Snoozby and the Great Big Bedtime Battle by Terry Cralle, RN and W. David Brown, PhD, is the first book in the Snoozby sleep series. 

The story is centered around 8-year-old Sam and his trusty friend, Snoozby the pillow. At bedtime Sam ignores Snoozby and stays awake much too late. 

He quickly learns that sleep deprivation is no fun at all. Going about the school day is challenging for Sam, since lack of sleep makes him irritable, drowsy and unfocused. Not to mention he’s craving unhealthy snacks and sweets!

With the help of Snoozby and his knowledgeable schoolteacher, Sam begins to understand the importance of sleep. A relaxing bedtime routine ensures that Sam wakes up energized and ready for the day ahead. Once Sam begins practicing healthy sleep habits, he is able to excel in school and feel like a winner. 

The benefits of sleep are clear: It helps you pay attention, think clearly and feel your best. There’s no point in fighting sleep!

Their tips can help put an end to bedtime resistance, which is a common problem in children. However, it would have been interesting if the story had explored the role of Sam’s parents in teaching him about sleep.

The book includes a discussion guide that will be especially helpful for teachers. It also provides AASM sleep recommendations to help kids recognize how much sleep they should be getting to stay healthy and happy. 

If you’re looking for an engaging story about making bedtime a priority, choose Snoozby and the Great Big Bedtime Battle to help your child become a Sleep Superhero!
