Darkness is falling everywhere and little ones are getting sleepy, feeling cozy, and being tucked in. It's time for a wide yawn, a big hug, and a snuggle under the covers--sleep tight "Working beautifully with the soothingly repetitive text, each painting conveys a warm feeling of safety and affection."--"School Library Journal"


Beautiful book


This is a lovely book for babies. I read it most nights. It's just the right length and it rhymes and mentions sleep and bed a lot. This particular version is smaller in size - I wondered why it was cheaper. Would have been nice to know.

And in the USA Time for Bed and Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge have each sold over a million copies. Time for Bed is on Oprah's list of the twenty best children's books of all time.
