Buzzy doesn't want to go to bed. He's having too much fun playing with all of his toys.

His dad calls out, Buzzy, it's time for bed! and that's when the adventure begins.

Buzzy's toys will understand his need for adventure...won't they?

Bedtime for Buzzy is a sweet story about a wee one who does not want to go to bed.

As this is a topic that every parent is familiar with, Buzzy is a fun way to show kids that it's okay to go to sleep. Even your toys need rest!

Readers will see what [Buzzy] sees, experiencing his toys and his adventures from his singular point of view. What a fun and inclusive idea! [L]ittle ones can identify with the main character wholly and completely.
