Counting Sheep! Why do we sleep? follows Archie the elephant, Frank the flamingo, Bob the duck and the rest of the gang while they explore the bedroom. Why do I go to bed? How does my lamp work? and What is moonlight? are just some of the questions that the friends discuss. With accessible diagrams and 12 step-by-step experiments (plus some of the world's silliest jokes!), they find out the simple scientific explanations to these questions and many more. A uniquely unstuffy approach to science that gets kids involved with the world around them.
