The Best Bed for Me

author/illustrator: Gaia Cornwall

Mama would like Sweet Pea to settle into bed, but itís not quite time. Even though the bed is fluffy, itís not as snuggly as curling up like a pig in the mud, or as spacious as sleeping in the wide ocean like a blue whale. Itís not as fun as sleeping high up in a tree like a koala, or hanging upside down like a bat. And itís definitely not as relaxing as sleeping standing up, like an emperor penguin. But after mimicking all the ways different animals rest, this little one concedes that a comfy bed, a soft pillow, and a good-night wish offer the best way to fall asleep after all. Gaia Cornwall brings us a loving, humorous story for even the most energetic of bedtime listeners.

From the creator of Jabari Jumps and Jabari Tries, the tale of a stalling child with a lively imaginationóand a passion for animal factsómakes for the best kind of bedtime story.
