Sleep Time with Lilly – The Perfect Rhyme for Bedtime
This rhyming book is, exactly like it says, perfect for bedtime. Lilly doesn’t want to go to bed, she’s wide awake, and sleep is for babies, isn’t it? She calls on the forest fairy to help her. But the wise forest fairy gives her some sound advice about why there is a time to sleep and a time to play. This book is bound to enchant and have children looking forward to sleep.
What Carmen says about the book: “I use this rhyme to get my four-year-old daughter to go to bed at night I remind her to be like a tulip and close her eyes just like their petals and rest up during the night.”
Sample text from Sleep Time with Lilly – Bedtime rhyme
The sky was dark and draped in sparkles of light,
Day has passed and turned to night.
Lilly’s mom was getting her ready for bed. “Now that the book is all done and read. It’s time to say good night,” she said and kissed Lilly
on the head.
“But mom I am not done with this day, Maybe another story we could read or a game we could play?”
“No buts Lilly… when you see the moon You know it is time for bed soon.” “Listen closely, even the night crickets make it clear.
Their chirping is a cue that it is time for sleep nmy dear.”
