A rabbit family prepares for bed by cleaning up toys, folding clothes, talking about the events of the day, and reading a book.
I. Love. This. Book. The illustrations are beautiful, and I love that this bedtime book goes through a beautiful routine from sunset and eating dinner to discussing the day, reading a book, giving kisses, and falling asleep. The whole thing is beautiful!
When the World Is Ready for Bed sweetly illustrates the bedtime routine of a family of bunnies. The bunnies alone are enough to make it a hit in my house, but beyond that, the pictures are calm and colorful, and the rhyming text is simple and sweet. There's something to look at on every page, and the book isn't too long. There are a lot of animals-go-to-bed books out there, but this is one of my favorites from that genre.
