Everybody Sleeps (But Not Fred) by Josh Schneider is the story of Fred, a very busy little boy whose to-do list is just too long to allow him to sleep. As we enjoy Schneider’s humorous story and playful illustrations we journey through the jungles, farms, and oceans as Fred checks one activity after another off his very long list, and although we learn that all the birds and beasts must sleep, Fred remains determined to continue his chopping, jumping, hunting, and shouting. The chickens doze drowsily along the way, and even the monkeys we encounter just can’t believe Fred is still wide awake. But wait! Is that Fred closing his eyes? Shhh! Fred is finally asleep. If bedtime is your little one’s least favorite time of the day, try this absurd sleepy story and have them drifting off right alongside Fred, but just be careful to close the book softly so as not to wake Fred!
