Description
It's bedtime at Bessie and Lil's, but neither of these bunnies seems to be listening to Mama. She is trying to read them a bedtime book, one of her favorites from when she was a little bunny. But Bessie is more interested in her headstands, and Lil is practicing her skipping. Will they ever get to bed? Alternating between the girls playing in their room and the interior pages of Mama's book, this heartfelt story offers just the right mixture of humor and sweetness. With irresistible illustrations and lyrical text, it is both a celebration of sisterhood and a perfect way for parents to coax their own active
little ones to bed.
