Reading Adventure Pack: Sleep
Go on a "sleepy" reading adventure! Teachers can support reading together at home with our reading adventure packs — designed to encourage hands-on fun and learning centered around paired fiction and nonfiction books. (Level: Kindergarten)
Explore sleep and hibernation!
The featured books for the Sleep Adventure Pack are Time to Sleep, by Denise Fleming, and Animals Don't Wear Pajamas, by Eve Feldman. In Time to Sleep, Bear and his animal friends help each other get ready for winter and hibernation. In the nonfiction book Animals Don't Wear Pajamas, Feldman introduces children to the way that 16 different animals get ready to sleep.
