Illustrations by Giuseppe Fedeli.

Dedicated to children, but also addressed to parents and teachers, this book illustrates how and for how long some animals sleep. A sleep rule is connected to each of them. On the last pages there are drawings to be completed and a short questionnaire that will allow children to discover, based on their habits, which animal they resemble the most. It therefore aims to promote greater knowledge of sleep and its functions among children, and appropriate lifestyles with a view to prevention.
