5 Minute Really True Stories for Bedtime

Why do we sleep? Do animals dream? Where is the oldest bed in the world? In this compendium of 5-minute true stories, you will travel to Ancient Egypt to explore the five beds of Tutankhamun, jet off into space to see how astronauts get ready for bed, and plunge underwater to learn how hibernating turtles breathe through their bottoms. With up-to-the-minute, expert information and stunning illustrations, this book is the ultimate brainy bedtime companion for young children.

Our Review: This is an occasion where I am really glad I didn’t judge a book by its cover. It’s not a bad cover, just for me it’s not a wow cover. It definitely has wow insides though. Full of factual information about the night; about how we sleep/dream, how other people around the world sleep, how animals sleep, the goings on of the night-time hours while we are sleeping, and a good dollop of information about the night sky. All of this is contained within easily digestible ‘5 minute bedtime stories’ with light touches of humour and engaging illustrations.

It has 192 pages so it is a nice chunky book for your bedside table (or for the kids’ bedside table if they really must have alllllll the nice books for themselves).

Inquisitarium was founded on the belief that children learn through play and that toys and books have the power to spark wonder and cultivate a curious personality. We love sourcing the best toys that provide a sensory experience or teach the child something valuable. We are also completely addicted to children's books; our favourites are the beautifully illustrated ones with factual details seamlessly woven into a good bedtime story.

The name 'inquisitarium' aims to create a feeling of place for the sense of being inquisitive, curious and questioning about the universe. It also sounds like a terrarium, which fits wonderfully with our efforts to be green.

We are constantly learning about what it is to have an eco-friendly and sustainable business, and subsequently adapting our business processes and approach to product design and packaging to limit our environmental impact.
