Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0618276971, Hardcover)

The average human sleeps a total of twenty-four years over a lifetime. That’s a lot of naps! Yet people aren’t the only ones who enjoy a good rest; if you look around, you’ll find that all animals have a biological need for sleep. But some animals snooze in ways that we would find startling—if not absolutely impossible. A sooty tern, an island bird, takes a nap in midair as it slowly flaps its wings. A fruit bat gets forty winks while hanging upside down from a tree branch. A bottlenose dolphin can put half of its brain to sleep while it continues to swim. What other remarkable methods of sleep exist?

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:57:20 -0400)

Provides a look at the many different ways in which animals sleep, from a snoozing orangutan to a sleeping whale, as well as facts about each animal pictured.
