Just One More Sleep

All Good Things Come to Those Who Wait . . . and Wait . . . and Wait

Illustrated by Laura Cornell


Just One More Sleep

About the Book

In a celebration of delayed gratification, New York Times bestselling duo Jamie Lee Curtis and Laura Cornell give readers a new self-help book for kids that explains why waiting can be wonderful—and can give you a reason to cheer all year round, from New Year's Day to Kwanzaa, and all the holidays in between.

Just one more sleep…

Waiting is not easy—especially for children. Often they measure the concept of time in how many more sleeps until the exciting day comes, when there is so much to do, so many exciting things to explore, and so many holidays to celebrate! In a buoyant book that channels childhood exuberance, Jamie Lee Curtis makes it clear why waiting is worth it. And with Laura Cornell’s bold and humorous artwork helping readers celebrate and appreciate milestones throughout the year, this is a story worth waiting for—and one kids will want to read over and over again.

Praise for Just One More Sleep:

"Charming family fun." —Kirkus Reviews

"Giddy expectation fills the pages of this anticipatory holiday bonanza from previous collaborators Curtis and Cornell. Busy, sometimes spattered watercolors with sketchy outlines supply an unrestrained energy . . . It’s a raucous celebration of celebration, and a reminder that good things can be worth the wait." —Publishers Weekly

"An endearing book with lots of kid appeal." —School Library Journal
