The World Never Sleeps

IMG_5733The World Never Sleeps

Open up your child’s imagination. Give them knowledge of the world around them with “The World Never Sleeps”. This non-fiction hard bound book is filled with lovely full color illustrations by Carol Schwartz. Author Natalie Rompella tells readers about the lives of  tiny creatures that we rarely see. These insects and more are always near, day and night. The intriguing tale will explain how “The World Never Sleeps”. I love how Rompella divides the times of day and night between the many creatures that are active all the while teaching new vocabulary to young learners. The back of the book holds a treasure of information about the lives of the many tiny friend readers have met along the way.


This nonfiction picture book reveals the hidden lives of insects and other small creatures from one midnight to the next. The world may appear to be sleeping in the dead of night, but it is
not. As moonflowers open and stars shine, nature goes about her business. The world never sleeps. Natalie Rompella’s lyrical text is vividly complemented by Carol Schwartz’s watercolors. A cat roams through the illustrations—silent witness, in the house and in the yard, to the myriad lives of night and day. A sense of mystery pervades all—even the backmatter natural-history portraits of the animals met in the book. This nature book invites children into a parallel universe, one that teems with life while they sleep.
