Sleepyhead, Sleepyhead.
Good night, good night,
my Sleepyhead.

A kitten toddler is putting her favorite teddy bear to bed, just as her mother always tucks her in. But it's really not bedtime until one more hug, one more kiss, one more snuggle, and one more story have been shared. And then, finally, it is time for sleepyheads everywhere to fall asleep.

With rhythmic text and whimsical illustrations, this bedtime story is available for the first time as a Classic Board Book.
