Published by Gecko Press, this is a board book suitable for 0 – 2 years.
This is an interactive book with a simple story which will appeal to small children. It’s time for Rabbit to go to bed. He needs to clean his teeth and put on his pyjamas. You tap his shoulder to make Rabbit turn around, clap your hands for him to put on his pyjamas and brush his teeth. His pillow is fluffed up, you say hoppity-hop, tickle his ears, and gently stroke his back and then tuck little Rabbit in tight.
I read this book to 18-month-old Quinn as she was ready to go to bed. She listened, tapped his shoulder, clapped her hands, fluffed his pillow up, tickled his ears and stroked his back, just as she loves being done to her. Satisfied she snuggled down into bed with Sheepy, while I turned off the light after kissing her good-night.
The bedtime ritual is an important one in Quinn and her big sister Abby’s lives and this book is an excellent prompt for children to snuggle down to sleep after story time.
