Both spirited and soothing, this bedtime read-aloud story is the perfect preface for a trip to dreamland. The sun has set, and sleepyheads all across the land are tucked into their cozy beds. But there's one little sleepyhead who's not in his bed.(goodreads summary)
Getting those little ones to finally settle in after a long day can sometimes be a challenge. This book is the perfect read-aloud for cuddling and helping them wind down from that busy day. Adding this sweet and soothing story to a nightly bedtime routine is sure to let kids know that it is time for a good night sleep themselves. The simple rhyming text and cute illustrations of baby animals sleeping in special places throughout, adds a sense of calmness and offers a gentle message to children that it is their turn now for sleep. One little sleepyhead seems to be missing from their bed at the end but has a very heart warming outcome. This one could soon become a bedtime favorite and I think this is a "just right book" for ages 2-5.~
