As a little mouse tosses and turns in his bed of dried grasses, he imagines that other animals must surely have better sleeping arrangements. A bird’s nest, a kangaroo’s pouch, a polar bear’s den–they all sound
so cozy . . . at first. But a patient mother mouse helps her little one see why home is best for him.
This mother and child’s loving banter suggests a game that parents and toddlers will quickly add to their own bedtime routines–ensuring sweet dreams for all.

Praise For Sleep Tight, Little Mouse

“A small, sweet book that describes, with disarming simplicity, a little porcupine’s adventures. Morgan’s watercolors include dozens of appealing details. This is a charming Beatrix Potter descendant.”
