Time for Bed

Time for Bed

by Mem Fox Illustrated by Jane Dyer

Darkness is falling everywhere and little animals are getting sleepy, feeling cozy, and being tucked in for the night. It's time for a wide yawn, a big hug, and a snuggle down under the covers. Dyer's lovely illustrations work in tandem with Fox's soothing text to "convey a warm feeling of safety and affection" (School Library Journal). Full color.
