Time to Go to Bed

Publisher: Featherstone

Bedtime is an important part of the day which all children will recognise, and this lovely little picture book uses simple language to explore why sleep is essential to help stay healthy and happy. It suggests occasions when children may need more sleep, for example, when they are poorly, or dealing with new experiences, and highlights some typical signs of tiredness, such as feeling drowsy or being silly.

Ideal to share with toddlers at bedtime as part of a positive sleep routine, the book encourages interaction by asking questions, including ‘where do you sleep?’ and ‘what do you wear to go to bed?’. The simple illustrations are bold and bright, and feature children from of a range of ethnicities.

A useful section for parents and carers at the end provides information about the importance of sleep for a child’s development. As well as tips to help develop a good bedtime schedule, there is advice on where to seek help if sleep is an issue. Part of a series that includes Time to Care and Time to Go to Nursery, these books are created by an Early Years expert to help young children develop key life skills.
