5 MINUTE REALLY TRUE STORIES FOR BEDTIME is a very cool collection of bedtime themed stories. It spans topics from "What Are Dreams?" to how different animals sleep to "The Northern Lights." Each one is meant to be about 5 minutes, but I found this varied a lot by how interested a child was in the story and of course how quickly the reader reads. Some of them are longer and some shorter, but they are each great for a bedtime read.

What I loved: This book has so much information in it - even as an adult, there is a lot to learn, and I found myself just as fascinated in some of stories as my child was. Every page has colorful and detailed illustrations related to that story that make it perfect for snuggling up together and reading with a young child. This is great for older preschoolers and elementary school aged readers who can appreciate a serial book - it is not a single-sitting read, but is great for children who like to hear something new each night.

There's so many great stories in here. The stories about how animals sleep are favorites with our animal lover, but I was really fascinated by the historical and world record sleep-related stories. It is always great to find a book that children and caregivers can both enjoy, and this one definitely fit the bill! There's also a great bonus in that it is educational - and things are explained such that young children can understand them.

Final verdict: 5-MINUTE REALLY TRUE STORIES FOR BEDTIME is a great educational read focused around sleep and bedtime. Highly recommend for readers who enjoy learning new things and having something new to read each night.
