Even Monsters Need to Sleep came highly recommended to me by my nearly 5yr old grand. I can't think of a higher recommendation!

One of the pages features a co-sleeping dragon family. This is probably a nice addition if co-sleeping families are reading the book, but potentially problematic if trying to encourage independent sleep habits.
