"Author and illustrator make bedtime about as appealing as it gets." — PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (starred review)
It's sleepytime down in the woods, but not one of the baby animals is ready to go to bed. The bear cubs want to play, the little hedgehogs are hungry, the bunnies are peek-a-booing, and their mamas are at their wits' end! Welcome to a delightful woodland world full of tots of all types eluding bedtime — until wise Grandma Owl affirms with a story that the time is just right to say good night.
About the Author
Carole Lexa Schaefer says DOWN IN THE WOODS AT SLEEPYTIME was inspired "by all my friends at Little Friends Preschool who like to play just a little bit longer—even at sleepytime."
Vanessa Cabban says, "I wanted to suggest that bedtime can be the best time of day—by creating pictures that make children feel safe and warm, helping them drift from the excitement of play to the coziness of their beds."
