For one energetic three-year-old, there are countless reasons to love his new big boy bed. There's room now for Teddy to sleep with him, and his painted clay lizard, and Hippo. He can go under the bed and pretend to be a dog and scare his cat, Whiskers. Best of all, he can get out of his bed any time he wants—as long as his parents don't hear him! Written with warmth and humor, this story captures the feelings surrounding a rite of passage that every child experiences. Eve Bunting's simple, reassuring text and Maggie Smith's bright, lively illustrations are just right for beginning readers and listeners.

A little boy moves from his crib into his big boy bed. The little boy feels all grown up because he is able to get out of his bigboy bed eventhough his parents tell him to go back to bed. Cute read aloud book grades pre-k through 1st.

This book tells of a little boy who has grown out of his crib and now gets to move to his "big boy bed". He tells of all the different things he can do in hi new bed that he couldn't do in his crib. This is an awesome book to use to show children that they shouldn't be scared when making the change.
