Does the farmer sleep on a mattress of hay? Is the baker's bed made of soft, doughy bread? And is the grocer most comfortable resting on a bed of lettuce? No matter what the bed or walls look like, when the day's activities are done, it's time for everyone, big or small, to go to sleep.
With whimsy and humor, Julie Markes and David Parkins show that although everybody has a unique idea of quiet and order happy dreams and slumber await all when evening falls.

A visual delight! Humorous full page spread picture are full of detail sure to amuse children as well as adults. A teacher is depict snuggled in be under neath a cover printed with letters and numbers. The librarian sleeps with a book and teddy bear with a book and glasses. The grocer sleeps with a stuffed rabbit holding a carrot. The bakers bread is decorated with a gingerbread boy. An excellent bed time book especially for the reluctant child who needs a good reason to go to sleep.
Perfect for young children who have trouble at bedtime; simple rhyming text and softly colored illustrations remind young children that the adults in their lives (teacher, police officer, baker, etc.) go to bed when it is time for sleep, and encourages them to do the same. Sweet. Is it effective? Let us know!
Absolutely adorable book. It goes through the members of the community- postman, librarian, etc that a child would know and shows each one in their bed that is made up of things that their job involves. For example- baker, bread. Also shows characters with their stuffed animal who is also dressed the part. LOVE THIS BOOK. My son is three and loves it too!
