Screw meditative methods, white-noise machines, and chamomile tea--this photographic compilation of silly sweeties napping will lull you peacefully to sleep.
As suggested by its title, this ridiculous book is a sleeping aid which harnesses the relaxing power of cute animals. Well, wait--haven't you heard? The secret to a happy and fulfilled life is to just get eight hours of sleep per night. Except there's one big catch: getting a good sleep is borderline impossible in our current snoozing climate. We've got smartphones forever by our bedside--complete with the blue-light temptation of scrolling through social media till sunrise. There's only one solution: turn off the phone, and flick instead through this therapeutic book of snoozy animals. They will coo you into sleepy submission.
As its title subtly suggests, this book is literally just pictures of snoozing animals. Some of the lil' sleepy sweeties featured include resting raccoons, cats having a catnap, napping numbats, siesta-ing seals, drowsy dingoes, slumbering sloths, and zebras catching some much-needed Zs. Toward these furry angels we must turn in these dire times of sleeplessness to get a good night's sleep of our own.
This book is the follow-up-of-sorts to the hugely successful and totally adorable This Book Is Literally Just Pictures of Cute Animals That Will Make You Feel Better.
About the Author
This book was lovingly collated by the editorial staff at Smith Street Books, who needed many coffees throughout the process to resist the sleep-inducing power of these angelic animals.
'Sometimes a book does just what it says on the tin and this is certainly one of those. Many of us are struggling to sleep in the current climate and this adorable book claims to have the answer: look at drowsy dogs, sleepy seals and even cat-napping koalas. Will it really help you get a good night’s rest? There’s no concrete evidence but, if counting sheep is a valid practice, why not lions, bears and piglets, too?' - The Daily Mail
