"Wide Awake Jake" is the story of a little boy who just can't go to sleep. This book, with big, colorful pictures and descriptive sentences is perfect for children around age 5 or 6. In the story, Jake's mother tries to coax him to sleep by telling him to pretend he is a hibernating bear, a sleepy mouse, and a baby bird in it's nest. In a kindergarten setting, it would be a good story for kids before their nap time. It would also be kind of funny to tell the children to act like the animals in the book if they are having trouble settling down. ( )
