This is a great book for families to use when they put children to sleep. It has a lot of easy language for kids to read and it's very relatable for children.

This book deals with all of the animals on the farm as they get ready to fall asleep at night. This book has a lot of repetitive text, and has a lot of good pictures to go along with the text. It's very cool for the students to get an idea of how all the different animals in a farm go to bed at night. ( )

This book is a very basic book that would be good with kindergartners. We say goodnight to a bunch of animals and you do not learn much from this book. It is very cute and innocent but I dont see this as a big learning book. ( )

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. ( )

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
