Fiona has spent the day at the beach and now it's time for bed.

"Time to say good night," said Mama.
"I'm not ready!" said Fiona.
"You've had a long day. You must be tired, from your head to your toes," said Mama.
"Maybe just a little tired...."

This may be a bedtime story, but Maggie Smith's bright illustrations are richly colored and full of life.

"Toes, go to sleep!" said Fiona.
Toes were for gripping flip-flops on the way to the beach.
Toes were easy. They went right to sleep."

The illustrations feature bright and bold depictions of Fiona's earlier daytime activities, while the pajama clad Fiona is contrasted in a smaller inset box, growing wearier with each page until she is finally and peacefully asleep against a backdrop of evening blue. Feet, Go to Sleep is an attractive combination of enjoyable and practical.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0449813258, Hardcover)

From the New York Times bestselling author of Miss Brooks Loves Books! (and I don’t) comes a gentle bedtime book that includes a proven relaxation technique parents can use to help their little ones go to sleep after an exciting day.
 
The sun has set and dinner is done, but Fiona is still excited about the day and is not at all ready for bed.
 
So her mom helps her settle down with their nightly ritual of sending each part of her—from her toes to her nose—off to sleep. As Fiona relaxes her body, she recalls a marvelous day at the beach where feet were for stomping in the waves, legs were for running after cousins, tummy was for holding strawberries, and arms were for catching beach balls. And bit by bit, memory by memory, Fiona slips from a great day into a good night.
 
Barbara Bottner and Maggie Smith create an action-packed day to remember and provide parents with a wonderful technique for helping their own busy little ones drift peacefully off to sleep.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 02 Jul 2015 19:22:00 -0400)

A child looks back on the day and drifts off to sleep, one body part at a time.
