Annotation: "Water Beds: Sleeping in the Ocean" is a soothing bedtime story that answers the question of how marine mammals manage to sleep in the ocean. Youngsters meet ten marine mammals, including sea otters, bottlenose dolphins, manatees, harbor seals, humpback whales and walruses, and learn about each animal's unique sleeping habits. Connie McLennan's rich oil paintings capture the ocean's habitats and its appealing creatures, helping this story invite children to drift into peaceful sleep on the gentle waves of imagination. An educational supplement in the back of the book includes teaching trivia about marine mammals, their sleep habits, and how they have adapted to their watery environment, and make-your-own marine mammal craft using various animal adaptations. "Water Beds" is the winner of the Mom's Choice 2005 Best Author Award and a 2007 Learning Magazine Teacher's Choice Award.
