ABOUT THE BOOK ABOUT THE BOOK
Synopsis

Synopsis

As one child goes to bed, another child is waking up on the other side of the world. With each page turn, readers see the same moment in time in nine different countries: the United States, Nigeria, Japan, Mexico, India, Thailand, Haiti, England, and Brazil. The lift-the-flap feature makes the "big idea" concept of time accessible to young readers. Open the book to a child reading before bed in Alaska, then lift the flap on the opposite page to see someone in Nigeria getting dressed to start her day.

Durga Bernhard’s simple text and whimsical illustrations make WHILE YOU ARE SLEEPING a perfect read-aloud–especially for bedtime. Back matter includes a map and author’s note explaining time zones and highlighting the different countries featured in the text.

An excellent resource for all areas of the curriculum, this book invites readers to learn more about the cultures, people, and places in the world around them.
