Synopsis

Sleep Disorders by Mary Brophy Marcus

Sleep is as important to the human body as food and water. Recent research suggests that those who get less than the recommended eight hours a night are more likely to become sick and die sooner than their well-rested counterparts. Though there is much about sleep that remains a mystery to scientists, there is mounting evidence of health risks as more and more Americans cut back on needed rest and bad sleep habits are being passed on to children. Sleep Disorders is a concise guide to sleep and sheds helpful light on how it functions and how it can be disrupted.Coverage includes sleep disorders such as insomnia, snoring, sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, narcolepsy, and sleepwalking. Sleep's relationship to chronic illnesses such as heart disease, arthritis, and diabetes is also discussed. Chapters include: What Is Sleep?, Insomnia, Sleep Apnea, Movement Disorders, Narcolepsy, andChildhood Sleep Disorders.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

We love Lovereading4kids because it promotes reading choices, new authors and a sense of community for children of all ages!

Rachel Bridgeman

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

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!

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

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