Big Kid Bed by Leslie Patricelli

Publisher: Candlewick

Publication Date: September 4, 2018

A toddler is excited to sleep in a big bed. The bed is soft and tall. Will the child fall out of such a tall bed? Parents place pillows on the floor around the bed as a safety precaution. The bed is so big. Parents fill the bed with stuffed toys so the bed does not seem so big. The toddler demonstrates independence by leaving the bed and searching the house to find that pets and parents are sleeping. Sleepiness has the toddler returning to the big bed for a night’s rest. This child is clothed in a diaper or underwear with one squiggle for hair which makes this toddler be able to pass for a boy or a girl. Illustrations have few items on the pages which makes the book’s message easy to understand.
