Too Small for My Big Bed by Amber Stewart
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Learning one of life's lessons becomes something to savour in this beautiful picture book that focuses on an important toddler milestone. Through gentle demonstration that he is big enough to do all sorts of things all by himself, and reassuring him that she's never far away, Mummy is able to persuade Piper to sleep through the night in his own bed.

Synopsis

Too Small for My Big Bed by Amber Stewart

Piper is a little tiger cub whose daily dilemma will be familiar to toddlers everywhere. During the day he wants to be brave and fearless, he wants to do everything all by himself. But as bedtime approaches, Piper doesn't want to be brave, he wants to feel Mummy by his side. So every night he pads over to Mummy's bed.

Reviews

A beautifully illustrated (the spread-eagled, sleeping Piper will melt your heart) and touchingly sweet story about growing up and taking the first steps towards independence. Daily Mail
