Time for Bed is a great bedtime story for early elementary, pre elementary students. It's a great way for kids to learn the importance of going to sleep, because animals also have to go to bed too. ( )
  MollyMcConaughey | Mar 17, 2017 |
In the book "Time for Bed", there are a bunch of different animals who are all being put to sleep by their mothers and at the end, a little boy is being put to sleep by his mother. The central idea of this story is to show children that everyone goes to sleep at night, even animals. They can look at all the different types of animals, and see that their mothers put them to sleep when it is night time. This book can be helpful for a child that does not want to go to sleep at night or does not want to take a nap. ( )

This book is about little animals who are going to bed. It is for kids that are in the younger age range, I probably would not read it in a class of kids older than kindergarten.

Time for bed for every little or baby animals to sleep and the parent will stay by their side as they sleep. I like it because it show the relationship between parent and a child and will use it on my teaching to show there a baby and mommy animals. It suitable for k-3rd grade.

This is a wonderful bed time story. this might be a book I read to my kids rather than at school. If I were to use it in a classroom I would really talk about the wonderful illustrations and the onomatopoeia usage. It is about mother animals telling their babies it is time for bed. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0152010661, Board book)

All the sleepy-eyed creatures in Mem Fox and Jane Dyer's sweet picture book, Time for Bed, may be inspiration enough for young readers to nod off to dreamland. But just in case, this charming gift set includes, in addition to a board-book edition of the popular book, a soothing ceramic nightlight depicting Mama and Baby sheep. ("It's time for bed, little sheep, little sheep, / The whole wide world is going to sleep.") Here is the perfect gift for a newborn, who will start out life in the coziest surroundings possible. (Baby to preschool) --Emilie Coulter
