Get ready for bed with this soothing sleepy story—now available as a Classic Board Book!

The sun has set, and sleepyheads all across the land are tucked into their cozy beds.
Rabbit is snoozing in the weeds, and Duck is snuggled in the reeds.

But there’s one little sleepyhead who’s not in his bed.
Where, oh where, could he be?

This is a sweet going-to-bed book complete with soothing text and gentle calming illustrations that goes perfectly with a pre-bed cuddle! All the animals are simply called "sleepyheads" in the book, so you can add in discussing with your child what each animal is and also look for the moon on each page if you're interested in a little "I Spy".

Such a sweet bedtime book! I love that this book takes a look at where animals sleep, and I love the sweet ending! Beautiful, soothing rhyme and sweet illustrations.
