Overview

The adjustment from crib to big-kid bed can be a scary one. But with a little imagination and lots of plush toys, it won't be so bad.

It's time to make that move to a big-boy bed--but one little boy feels a teeny-bit intimidated. It's just so HUGE and empty. Who better to help fill the space than his endearing and cuddly stuffed animal friends? Now the bed's not so big, but is there any room left for him?
Capucine Mazille's friendly pictures present a very appealing young hero, and give every plush creature its own distinct personality.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Rand Hess
There is a time in every child's life when he or she must leave the comforts of a crib for a big kid's bed. Any parent or guardian knows what a challenge this can be. With terrific rhythm and rhyme, this story tells of a young boy who must now sleep in a bed of his own. He starts off by himself, looking scared, overwhelmed, and feeling "all alone" in his big boy bed. Then he decides to add a few stuffed animals to keep him company. He grabs his rabbit, skunk, and fox. Then adds a few more friends, including dogs, turtles, fish, and frogs. Soon he has added just about all his stuffed-animals and says, "With frogs at my feet and a horse on my head oh, how will I ever sleep in this bed?" He then sends them one by one to the floor where they all campout next to him, all except one tiny lamb and a fox. Then the boy drifts off to sleep, with the lamb by his side and the fox at his feet. This is the perfect book to read to a child who is transitioning from one sleeping arrangement to the next.
School Library Journal
PreS-A slight, rhymed story about a child who feels lost in his new, big-boy bed. His solution is to have nearly all of his stuffed-animal friends join him. Predictably, once his companions are ensconced, there isn't enough room for him. After a good deal of rearranging and most of the toys jettisoned to the floor, the little guy snuggles down with his favorite lamb and drifts into dreamland. Expressive, warm-toned, kid-friendly spreads and a simple text make this title appropriate for sharing. While a number of books deal with this childhood transition, libraries may want to purchase this title because of its basic language and approach.-Rosalyn Pierini, San Luis Obispo City-County Library, CA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
