Description


Are your toes getting sleepy? So very, very sleepy?

All day long they wiggle along -- wiggly, wobbly toes.

But now it's time to get some rest, so tomorrow we can be our best!




In the vein of such modern-day classics as Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes and The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep comes an irresistibly sweet goodnight story just right for little ones who need to get the wiggles out before settling down for bedtime. With soothing mindfulness language filled with gentle rhymes by debut author Kelli McNeil paired with adorable artwork by Cori Doerrfeld, this simple story masterfully captivates and lulls readers into slumber -- starting from their tickly toes all the way to their sleepy, blinky eyes!



Based on the author's grandmother's special mindful storytelling technique for quieting down rowdy grandchildren, this simple goodnight guide is sure to be a classic bedtime story in the making.

This lilting, fun picture book exploding with energetic drawings is a riff on folk tales of old. Author Daniel Bernstrom's debut, with shades of Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, is perfectly suited to Brendan Wenzel's colorful, animated illustrations. Storytime readers will find much to do in this imaginative eucalyptus, eucalyptus tree. - Maureen
