|One little rabbit's search for something nice to think about, to keep the bad dreams away. |
|Willa doesn't want to go to sleep in case she has bad dreams. So her brother Willoughby tells her to think of all the happy things that are waiting for her in the morning, like her toys and slippers. Will these thoughts help Willa get off to sleep? |
|Simple words and repetition make this a good read for those just beginning to read alone. A lovely book to share. |
|I really do love this type of cosy bed-time book. Debi Gliori's pictures just make me want to snuggle up in front of a warm fire and be a sleepy child again.
The story is a gentle tale which young readers will take to their hearts and parents will enjoy sharing with their children. This is one of those books that just makes you feel good, and it might even help anyone having trouble getting off to sleep to relax.
Should be a good buy for Christmas, especially if you liked Can't You Sleep Little Bear?, Guess How Much I Love You or The Bear. |
|Other books by Joyce Dunbar include Tell Me What It's Like To Be Big, The Ups and Downs of Mouse and Mole, The Very Small, Tutti Frutti. |
