'Have you ever wondered what the animals do? Do they go to bed like me and you?' This fun story takes the child on a delightful trip to the big, bouncy bed in the sky which gradually fills up with all sorts of sleepyheads, each arriving in their own inimical way. How does anyone get any sleep with all this noise and movement and fun? Until - somebody is tired, stretching, yawning - and it becomes a woozy, snoozy bed in the sky.
The language, movement, pictures and colours of this book just meld together perfectly into a gorgeous tale of bedtime that revs Miss 4 up and then brings her gently and quickly into sleep mode, ready for lights out and sweet dreams. This is always the last one we share and it's like a signal - when it's over it's snuggle-in, last-kisses and eyes-shut time.
