Harvard Health Publications and RosettaBooks release Successful Sleep Strategies for Kids
New York, NY – January 23, 2013 – Harvard Medical School pediatrician, Dennis Rosen, M.D., wrote Successful Sleep Strategies for Kids with concerned parents in mind. Some children—as many as 20 to 30 percent of all ages—suffer from some form of sleep disturbance. The eBook introduces the latest scientific discoveries in the field of pediatric sleep.
This Harvard Medical School Guide includes dozens of proven and effective ways to help children get better sleep and be more refreshed and alert during the day. These include avoiding exposure to common stimuli that wake a child’s brain up and how spending too much time in bed can disrupt a child’s sleep. The book also details how to prevent sleepwalking, night terrors, and bedwetting.
Harvard Health Publications arranges the publication annually of more than a dozen full-length traditional books. This title is part of its first entry into “digital originals.”

“EBook lines from major institutions are an effective way to reach millions of people worldwide,” said Arthur Klebanoff, CEO of leading independent eBook publisher RosettaBooks. “We look forward to developing this line into a leader on health topics.”
