Everyone is Asleep But Me
By: Diana Yacobi and Lily Safrani
About the Book
Lion is sleeping. Ball is sleeping. Train is sleeping. But Sleepy Bear is not sleeping! Instead of sleeping in his own bed, he goes to spend the night with Mama and Papa.
Inspired by the author’s daughter and grandson, Everyone is Asleep But Me is a gentle story that encourages young children to sleep in their own beds. Sleepy Bear learns about the importance of sleep – and how good it feels to sleep the whole night in his own bed.
