Description

Transitioning a little one from a crib to a toddler bed? This award-winning bedtime book is just for you!

★ “The simple text works in tandem with the illustrations to produce a great story that’s fun to read.” ―School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW

Getting ready for bed is lots of fun at Ed’s house. But while Ed loves going to bed, he doesn’t like staying there.

At bedtime, Ed plays silly games with Dad. He has a drink and brushes his teeth. He takes a bath and cuddles with Mom for a bedtime story. Then Ed is off to bed with hugs and kisses. But night after night he tiptoes down the hall and climbs into Mom and Dad’s big bed. Mom and Dad aren’t getting much sleep, so they come up with a plan to keep Ed in his bed. Ed doesn’t think much of Mom and Dad’s plan―so he comes up with one on his own!

Parents transitioning their little ones from cribs to toddler beds will immediately relate to Sebastien Braun’s charming spin on the perennial challenge of getting young children to stay in bed. Bright, uncluttered illustrations complement the simplicity of the story.
