Item description for Time for Bed by Mem Fox & Jane Dyer...

As darkness falls various animal parents get their children ready for sleep.

Publishers Description
"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.

Best Bedtime Book Ever  May 18, 2008
This gentle rhyming book is the perfect bedtime book. I buy it to give to all my new mother and grandmother friends. The illustrations are beautiful and peaceful. In the book, the animal moms are talking with their babies about it being time for bed. When I close my eyes, I can hear my son reading it to his baby boys. If you want to share the love and joy of books, buy this...the best bedtime book ever!
Time for Bed  Apr 26, 2008
This is a great book to add to your toddlers bedtime routine. The illustrations are beautiful and the words have a simple rhyme that cues your little one that it's time for bed/time for sleep. Each animal is with their parent preparing them for sleep, and the last two pages is a mother and her child. My 1 year old seems to really enjoy it.
A must-have from birth to 6 and beyond  Apr 11, 2008
If your kids are like mine, these sweetest illustrations will actually make them cuddle into you by the second page turn! One you can read from birth on, these sweet, short rhymes, reinforce the love of a parent and baby child in a beautiful, creative way.
Time for Bed  Mar 28, 2008
Time for Bed is a gorgeous children's bedtime book with wonderful watercolor illustrations. It has been my granddaughter's favorite book and so I ordered several for baby shower gifts. As one who does watercolors myself, I am delighted with the work of the artist as well as the writer. It sets the right comforting tone for putting a little one to sleep.
