~I received Go Sleep in Your Own Bed for the purpose of reviewing. Opinions and stories are my own.~
From bestselling, award-winning author Candace Fleming and beloved illustrator of the Maple books Lori Nichols comes a giggle-inducing read-aloud starring a cast of comically grumpy barnyard animals in Go Sleep in Your Own Bed. Sure to become a bedtime favorite for little ones ages 3 to 7.
This funny and irresistible picture book feels like a classic in the making. When Pig plops into his sty at bedtime, he finds Cow fast asleep in his spot. “Go sleep in your own bed!” he squeals, and sends her packing. But when Cow finally snuggles down into her stall, she finds Hen sleeping there. So begins a chain reaction of snoozing barnyard animals being awakened and sent off to their own beds, until every last one is in just the right place. Young children will delight in repeating the refrain “Go sleep in your own bed!” and laugh at the antics of these hilarious—and very sleepy—farm animals.
My girls absolutely LOVE picture books about bedtime. Probably because they experience bedtime every single day themselves. This book puts a smile on everyone’s face as the animals get ready for bed. As each one goes to bed on the farm they find another animal is already in their spot! Especially great for little ones that also have a hard time staying in their own beds! This is a book that quickly becomes a household favorite.
