Does Anyone At Your House Have Problems Falling Asleep?
We have all had the experience of not being able to fall asleep. Most of us have had the experience of owning a child that either could not fall asleep or fought falling asleep. This is a great book to read to a child who seems to be having problems with sleeping.
Barney Saltzberg authors and illustrates Chengdu Could Not, Would Not Fall Asleep
I really liked the book and think my youngest grandson, who use to be one of those that could not would not fall asleep, will become the next fan of Chengdu.
Chengdu is a Panda who lives in a bamboo grove and it was a lovely night and quiet as everyone in the grove was asleep. Everyone except Chengdu, that is!
As I read the book I caught myself nodding to the familiar attempts that Chengdu uses to try to fall asleep. Children will enjoy listening to the rhythmic dialogue of this book as I found the way it written rather relaxing. Some of the pages are cleverly designed to show Chengdu crawling up a branch to find the perfect spot to sleep.
Chengdu is a hard back book suggested for children ages 3-5 and has 48 pages.

It is a great picture book as well as story book and I think it would be a lovely addition to any summer reading list and fun to include while exploring panda bear facts and learning about what they eat and where they live.
