Have You Seen the Sleep Fairy ebook cover

** My thanks to Rachel at Authoright for my copy of this book and for inviting me to be part of the blog tour **

 

Description:

Have YOU seen the Sleep Fairy? This is the story of a sleep deprived mother and father who are rescued by this shyest of fairies, who only comes out at night when all the children in the home are asleep. She helps children get into the habit of sleeping through by leaving tiny items of interest under their beds for a few days until she can trust them to sleep through on their own. This sweet story is simply told by the author and beautifully bought to life in this new illustrated children’s story. Get your children into the habit of sleeping through by reading The Sleep Fairy to them and applying the idea to your family routine. Here’s to you and a peaceful night’s sleep.

My Thoughts & Review:

Having a young child means I spend a lot of time reading story books, and so when I saw this book I wondered if it might be a good one to add to our collection for bedtime reading.  With a cover that catches the eye, this book was grabbed quickly by small hands and “can we please read this?” soon followed.

Have You Seen The Sleep Fairy is a lovely story about a family helping their children sleep through the night by introducing The Sleep Fairy.  I know as a parent that there have been nights (and will probably be ones to come,) where sleeping is the last thing that a child wants to do, there are games to play, books to read, cars to play with…the list is endless really.  So the idea of a Sleep Fairy is really lovely, coming to bring good sleep for those who manage to sleep well all through the night and for those who don’t sleep so well there is a small surprise under the bed just for them.

When we read the book at bedtime, my daughter asked lots of questions about The Sleep Fairy, asking how she knows when you’re asleep, how she knows if you’ve had good sleep, how she knows what surprises to leave under the bed….yes I’ve got an inquisitive child….we decided that we would name the sleep fairy for our family.  Now we have Rosie the sleep fairy who comes to make sure we all have good sleep.
This makes for a lovely bedtime read, the story is just the right length to hold the attention of younger audiences without being too short and with a lovely illustration on each page it means there’s something to look at with each page turn and my daughter enjoyed being able to tell us the story through the pictures.

We very much enjoyed the story and will definitely be revisiting this one again soon (probably tonight as it seems to have wound up in the pile to read regularly….)
