Time for Bed, Sleepyhead

Disclosure: I received this book complimentary for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

It is easy to turn to this adorable book to read to my kids at bedtime. Time for Bed, Sleepyhead is the perfect story for early elementary aged kids (4-8) to help calm and relax them before bedtime. A perfect story to benefit many parents who struggle with getting their kids to fall asleep and stay in bed each night. Just in time to re-establish a good bedtime routine now that late nights and sleep-in days of Summer are over.

Sleep is essential for the growing child's brain.

Read aloud the story of little bear and his friends as they have a big day at the beach, then return home to eat dinner, take their baths, and head to bed, falling gently to sleep. Time for Bed, Sleepyhead pairs whimsical illustrations with storytelling techniques to tire your child’s imagination in order to help them settle down at bedtime and fall asleep.

We think this book is adorable - a fun, virtual adventure, sure to tire the kids out (and mamma). Relying on a hypnotic read, it might be a little too long for nighttime (32 pages) but we love the easy reading way and the illustrations are lovely. (So, we will just have to go to bed earlier :) A lot of questions were asked at the start, but after a few nights, my kids get ready for sleepy time! This is now my favorite books to pick up for bedtime! A great addition to any collection!
