Time For Bed by Mem Fox

Time For Bed by Mem Fox was recommended to me by a friend when my firstborn was tiny, and it’s proven to be a great illustration of that notion that first-hand reviews are the most useful. When I picked up the book at the store, I wasn’t overly impressed, but I bought it on the strength of her word. Five years later, we’re still reading it.

One of the hardest things about bedtime for toddlers is the certain knowledge that they’re missing out on the fun everyone else must be having while they’re asleep. Time For Bed gently shows baby animals being tucked in to bed by their parents, using phrases familiar to the child. By the end of the story, the message is that the child is not the only one in the world going to sleep.

Soft, cozy illustrations and rhymes that simply invite hushed voices and cuddles, this is a short book to ease those last few minutes before lights out.

Available on Amazon
