In the spirit of the classic “Goodnight Moon” authored by Magaret Wise Brown six decades past, a new book arrives on the scene that will win a place of high acclaim in the routine bedtime-story realm. Long a popular picture book topic, a unique twist to the matter of sleep is brought to life by Sandy Fisher-Houghton in her new book “Sleep Comes To You” (published by AuthorHouse).

In “Sleep Comes To You” Fisher-Houghton details the familiar story of a precocious child seemingly adverse to the option of sleep. Yet the book interrupts this familiar terrain by offering the refraining wisdom: “You don’t go to sleep / Sleep comes to you.”

Illustrated with real-life depictions of a wide-awake little boy and his once-calm-but-soon-growing-exasperated parent, “Sleep Comes To You” finds the humor in this familiar bedtime stand-off, offering throughout the constant sage wisdom: “You don’t go to sleep / Sleep comes to you.”

Fisher-Houghton was inspired to write “Sleep Comes To You” after experiencing her own bedtime conflict with her daughter Kelly who first exclaimed, "I can't go to sleep!" Reflecting on her response, "You don't go to sleep. Sleep comes to you!", she realized some time later that she had story-book material.

“It has been likened to Dr. Seuss in rhythm and rhyme,” says Fisher-Houghton about “Sleep Comes To You.” “It has even been performed in a dramatic recitation competition, earning the contestant a pass to regionals.”
