Cute book for bedtime, little rhymes with baby animals going to bed. I recommend.

A gorgeously illustrated sequence of animal parents say goodnight to their little ones in gentle rhyming couplets.

I have been reading Time For Bed to my little girl since she was six months old and it is our every day routine now (she is 18 months old) - sometimes we do the animal noises together for each page. We have the light off at bedtime so I just say it from memory and at the end she says 'nynite' and I go out. She still likes to pick it up and look at the pictures during the day though.

Darkness is falling everywhere and little ones are getting sleepy, feeling cozy, and being tucked in. It’s time for a wide yawn, a big hug, and a snuggle under the covers--sleep tight! “Working beautifully with the soothingly repetitive text, each painting conveys a warm feeling of safety and affection.”--School Library Journal

It's time for bed little mouse, little mouse. Darkness is falling all over the house.
