A perfect resource to share with children to help them understand and master the bedtime and naptime routines

The Time a series of clear and well-illustrated books for very young children to share with their parents and carers. The books are inclusive, embracing all elements of society and offer an instructive and supportive resource for those caring for pre-schoolers. 

The pictures in Time to Go to Bed are so good for developing vocabulary, with lots of questions and answers. Where do you sleep – the beach, a bed, a basket? Why do we sleep – for energy, recovery. How do we know we are tired? 

The useful tips at the back are really comforting to tired and worried adults in need of some practical support and advice!

Time to Go to Bed Synopsis

Not all children enjoy going to bed, and a good bedtime routine can be hard to master. Time to Go to Bed explains to children why everyone needs sleep, and how being tired can make us unhappy or act in a really silly way!

With simple text and delightful full-colour illustrations by Mel Four, this picture book helps children understand and follow the bedtime routine, from putting on pyjamas to settling down to sleep for the night. It shows children the many different places where sleep takes place, like cots, hammocks and even bird's nests.
