The midnight class was a time set aside in the middle of the night to awaken Liesel and prevent her nightmare induced bedwetting. Hans considered this "additional" reading instruction.

It wasn’t until later, when there was a bed-wetting incident midnightmare, that an extra reading education began. Unofficially, it was called the midnight class, even though it usually commenced at around two in the morning.
