Mommy, I want to Sleep in YOUR Bed! (by Harriet Ziefert and pictures by Elliot Kreloff) combines some elements from the books already discussed. Animals sleep where they are supposed to sleep, nighttime ritual, everyone goes to sleep, Charlie escapes, Mother explains about sleeping, Charlie tries to go to sleep. Can’t. Rearranges room. Falls asleep talking about how he was crying because he was forced to sleep alone. The end! My daughter says “oh no” repeatedly at the crying and the fact that it ends with Charlie talking about crying doesn’t seem to reassure her. What helps you to fall asleep?
You may be sick of sleep book posts, I’m moving on next week I promise, although there are definitely more sleep books out there. If you ever find a magical book that solves all sleep issues (for children and adults) please let me know.
