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.
