A Bed of Your Own

Submitted by Ms. Brenda!
In A Bed of Your Own by Mij Kelly, Suzy Sue and her barnyard friends use delightful rhyming whimsy to teach us the importance of sleeping in our own beds. Suzy Sue is getting ready for bed. She’s brushed her teeth and climbed into bed. She’s turned out the light and grabbed her Ted. But, her usually comfy bed is suddenly UNcomfy. She finds out why when a cow, a horse, a sheep, and a goat all pop up from under the covers. They are wondering why her bed is feeling a bit cramped, too. Suzy Sue takes them back to the barn, tucks them in, and reads them a bedtime story. They still aren’t quite ready for sleep, so she begins to talk to them with a dreamy, drowsy voice, so very dreamy and drowsy that they are sure to fall asleep soon. Can you guess who falls asleep first? The illustrator, Mary McQuillan, has given us adorable characters to follow throughout the story. Their expressions are sure to bring giggles to kids and adults, and the story itself is sure to help little ones drift off to dreamland, too. See this book listed in our catalog
