What You Never Knew
About Beds, Bedrooms, and Pajamas

by Patricia Lauber

Would you like to start your New Year with a bang? Grab this book and time travel into the study of beds in history! How did sleeping change for people as years have pass?

If you had been born a caveman, where would you have slept? What would your bed have been like? What would you have worn to bed?

Reading Beds, Bedrooms, and Pajamas is like being in a time machine, whisking you from a pile of sticks covered with fur to an ancient bed-closet in Rome to a great hall in the Middle Ages where you literally make your own bed and hit the sack every night ... and beyond. This book will both entertain you with its hysterical cartoons and let you peep into bedrooms through history. You'll see the first pajamas, a carved wooden headrest used instead of a pillow, the first bed frames, wild barbarians, royal beds, and peasant benches.

Best of all, you'll be thankful for a soft warm bed of your own without bedbugs!

Are you planning a Pajama Day? Beds, Bedrooms, and Pajamas will bring in skillfully designed activities to tie the fun to lots of learning!
