Synopsis

Everybody Sleeps (but Not Fred) by Josh Schneider

Every kind of bird and beast has to sleep, from the monkeys in the jungle to the whales in the ocean to the ants under the ground. But not Fred. His to-do list is far too long! Armed with plenty of imagination, this determined little boy and his attempts to resist bedtime are sure to strike a chord with today's over scheduled families. Drowsy animals of all stripes look on in disbelief as Fred keeps on going and going and going, until...Could it be that, after so much activity, even Fred needs to rest? Shhh. Close the book softly, and please let Fred sleep.

Reviews

A fun addition to the bedtime canon.

Kirkus, starred review * From visual gags like jellyfish in sleep masks...to verse mocking soporific picture-book rhymes...it's a pitch perfect parody. Sorry, parents: kids will be too busy laughing to get sleepy reading this one.

Booklist Praise for Princess Sparkle-Heart Gets a Makeover by Josh Schneider Schneider continues to show a remarkable talent for bringing uncommon humor and psychological depth to ordinary situations. . . . Another winner.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

Sam Bateman and family

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

Tracey Chorley

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
