School Library Journal - 09/01/2017 PreS—A child's bedtime and all the transitions that go with it is truly one of parents' greatest challenges. Going from crib to bed can be especially trying. This work tells the story of one little boy's troubled night of adapting to his "big-kid" bed. Initially, there is great excitement at the prospect of sleeping in his cool new cot with its dinosaur-shaped headboard. As darkness settles, what once seemed friendly now appears scary. His parents' room seems like a safe refuge until Dad's snoring and Mom's cold feet prompt the little guy to give his new space one more try. He tentatively returns to his room and happily realizes that his own cozy bed is the best place to be. VERDICT With enjoyable rhyming text and colorful engaging illustrations, this title is sure to be helpful for young ones facing slumber time challenges.—Mary Jennings, Camano Island Library, WA - Copyright 2017 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
