I rated this book a four because it was a really cute book. It was very funny, showing many imaginative pictures to go along with the text. But, it was centered around the mom and dad when I thought based off of the cover and title that it would be more about the child. It is definitely a book I would read to my students since it shows such great illustrations and is a fun silly book for them. It also has some rhyming in there and the ending is funny. I really did enjoy this book, I just wish it ...more
quick bedtime read.

This book is about a boy describing his dad's snores. He compares them to different things like a freight train, and a dinosaurs roar. His mom has to go sleep all over the place to get away from the snoring, but she can't sleep. So, she takes him to the doctor for his snoring, and he is cured! However, then he starts to talk in his sleep!
This book is absolutely precious. I could do lessons on this about learning the days of the week because it starts off with Monday night this happened, and Tues
The story is about what a poor family goes through each night, during the week as daddy snores keeping the whole household awake with comical and creative scenarios. In the ending most of the problem gets almost totally resolved... The kids enjoyed this oversized book very much during preschool storytime. I took advantage of providing a short activity about days of the week & everything tied in very well.

I got this book from the library as a jab to my hubby and when I read it to the kids, I couldn't stop laughing! You see, their daddy has sleep apnea and when he doesn't have his machine, he SNORES so loud...I feel for the mom in this story, I really do! AND, weirdness...the little girl in the story, her name is Natalie! Anyhow, it was probably mostly funny to me because I've so been there already...but it got 5 stars! ...more

I think everyone who has ever been around anyone who snores can relate to this book. I thought it was a humorous story that could be used with a lesson on sequencing. The book would also be great to read at home.

This was such a relatable book for me and it was too cute. It told the story of a little boy and his family that never got sleep because the father always snored. This book could be used in the a lesson about the days of the week and the sequence of events and how to sequence.

Highly amusing illustrations in a story which makes light of a potentially serious issue (backed up with some medical notes at the back). The sequencing of the similes seems a little arbitrary and some are less effective than others.

Great illustrations and a story that resonates (pun intended) in my household. My 5-year old really enjoys this book.

a study in exaggerations about how loud his father snores and where his mother tries to sleep to avoid the noise

Love the illustrations, and the story is just giggle worthy, as my kids will tell you. Its just a good read, and the lengths mom goes to finally get some sleep is fun to watch.
