The Lovereading4Kids comment

A delightful, gentle story to share with your little ones which will leave you both feeling restful, warm and cosy. This beautiful picture book has an ethereal quality and harnesses the maternal instincts within nature to suggest a safe environment with soothing colours and images of sleepy animals and the meditative influence of trees and the night skies.

Talulla Bear is not sleepy and is feeling restless after a busy day. She is finding it hard to relax and fall asleep so with a little help from mother bear she soon learns how to stretch like a cat, snuggle like a dog and find safety and comfort in her surroundings until she drifts gently off to sleep. A beautifully poetic story written by a grandmother to her granddaughter to help ease her into a peaceful sleep. ~ Shelley Fallows


Talulla Bear's Bedtime Book A Sleepytime Tale by Heather Roan Robbins

Little Talulla Bear needs help to get to sleep. In this dreamy bedtime tale, she's encouraged to snuggle down and imagine other sleepy animals, including the cosy cat and snoozing dog. Listening to the calming words of the story, and feeling safe beneath the tranquil night sky and twinkling stars, she soon becomes very, very sleepy...

The poetic and meditative language in this beautiful storybook, combined with Sarah Perkins' stunning and soothing illustrations, will gradually calm a restless child at bedtime. This book was originally written for Heather Roan Robbins' granddaughter, Talulla, who had trouble falling asleep. Just as she did with Talulla, here Heather takes children on a meditative journey to find that deep place of restful peace, a place where all can be right with the world.

About the Author

Heather Roan Robbins

Heather Roan Robbins is a writer, ceremonialist, and astrologer. Like her granddaughter, Talulla, Heather too once had difficulty falling asleep. She learned to visualize and drift into sleep through her work as an intuitive and interfaith spiritual counselor. After living in the quiet mountains of New Mexico and soothing prairies of North Dakota, as well New York City's loud chaos, she knows how relaxing it is to feel connected to the rhythms of nature, even if only through your mind's eye. Heather lives and practices in Minnesota.
