Sleep is for Everyone

By Paul Showers

Originally Published 1972

What would happen if you never went to bed? A team of scientists decided to find out by trying to stay awake for as long as they could. But they couldn’t last more than a few days. Everyone needs sleep.

When you get sleepy, your body is telling you that it needs a rest. Just as you would rest your muscles after a long hike, you need to rest your brain after a long day of thinking.

In this delightful Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science book, Paul Showers and Wendy Watson take a wide-eyed look at the science of shut-eye.
