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. ( )

Time for Bed is one of my favorite children's books! This book is great for children because it teaches them that animals also have to go to bed. I would use this in my classroom to teach about bedtime and how other beings have a bed time as well. The grade level for this book would be pre-k and up. ( )

This is one of my favorite kids' books. The graphics are beautiful, and it reminded me of lots of names for baby animals, which will come in handy when my child is old enough to start asking lots of questions! ( )

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
