What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

A board book for the most cuddly bedtime ever!

Tired little eyes, ready now for bed,

Tired little everything, precious sleepyhead.

By the end of a busy day, little knees are tired from crawling, little arms are tired from stretching—even little lips are tired from blowing kisses. But with the help of gentle verse, and art as sweet as a bedtime lullaby, tired little eyes will quickly give way to sleep.

Shhh . . .

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

Mom of Boys
Mom of three little boys who love books about dragons, whangdoodles and magic.
5.25 / 7.0
B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mommy-to-be! Recently enjoyed The Hobbit, Becoming, and The Marvelous Magic of Miss Mabel.
5.5 / 7.0

I love that this bedtime book is sweet and rhyming while also teaching little ones the names of body parts (eyes, arms, tummy, ears…). The pictures are sweet and have lots of different babies in them, bringing in a great diversity factor.
