Snoozby and the Great Big Bedtime Battle

Terry Cralle, RN, MS and W. David Brown, PhD, Explore sleep health and wellness in a new picture book for children which uncovers the frustrating challenges of sleep deprivation for children and adults.

Better Sleep Council spokesperson, Terry Cralle, RN, MS, and W. David Brown, PhD, DABSM, CBSM, tap into a day in the life of a young boy named Sam—who resisted sleep the night before and now faces the numerous and frustrating challenges of sleep deprivation that both children and adults will relate to.

The book is a groundbreaking nonfiction picture book for children about sleep health and wellness. Fully aware of the stressful bedtime battles that play out in homes around the globe every night, Cralle and Brown raise awareness of the benefits of sleep while “disarming” children who are fighting sleep. In turn, sufficient sleep becomes a “win-win” proposition for everyone. In the end, Snoozby, the animated pillow, is the superhero and defender of sleep and is victorious in his bedtime battle with Sam. This is an enjoyable bedtime story, yet its content is firmly based on current pediatric sleep medicine research.“Snoozby and the Great Big Bedtime Battle” is available for purchase through Rowe Publishing.

“Sleep is the forgotten country and is not getting the attention it merits. It plays out in the home, in the pediatrician’s office, and in school. Sleep is an important factor in the lives of children,” says Mary A. Carskadon, PhD.
