Product Information
“It’s time for bed, little cat, little cat / So snuggle in tight, that’s right, like that.” This 1993 bedtime favorite from the Australian author Mem Fox and the illustrator Jane Dyer is now available in this small, square board book edition. Even the most reluctant snoozers will find themselves lulled by the repetitive rhythms, as the parent sheep, cat, snake, and fish implore their babies to get some shuteye: “It’s time for bed, little sheep, little sheep, / The whole wide world is going to sleep.” Dyer’s watercolor illustrations are bucolic and beautiful. A sweet, soothing lullaby.

    Comments about Time for Bed:

    We checked this one out of the library so many times I decided to finally buy it. It is a sweet bedtime book of parent animals saying goodnight to their little ones.

    Soft rhythmic rhyming lulls my 20 month old right to sleep. "It's time for bed little mouse little mouse, darkness is falling all over the house"

    Illistrations are beautiful and charming. We love this book!
