This book hits close to home lately as I read it to my toddler at night, hoping that in fact he does sleep in his bed, all night and well past sunrise. Candace Fleming and Lori Nichols have created a book that’s fun to read, featuring your favorite barnyard characters in their various beds.
The best parts of the book are the phases they created as the animals reluctantly move back to their respective beds. They are fun to read and say and convey a lot of the story. For example, pig “waddley-jogs” back to his pen, cow “clompety-stomps” back to her stall after sighing “oh, hayseeds” after being ousted by pig. I do ad lib in a few more words for my little guy as he was missing a few parts of the story but he loves the book, really takes in the illustrations, and requests this routinely for a bedtime story.
