Getting ready for bedtime has never meant such a sweet treat until now. Are You Ready for Bed? by Jane Johnson will help you settle in and settle down with a wonderful story of Little Bunny who just isn’t ready for sleep. Mrs. Rabbit tries lullabies, bubble baths, and even warm milk, but still Little Bunny would rather enjoy his time with his mother. Once Little Bunny finally falls asleep, Mrs. Rabbit is ready for some peace and quiet.
This is the first book my six-year-old took out of the pile to read. The padded board book with the flocked cover is sure to catch your child’s eye too. Its soft, warm colors have a calming effect, and even I can’t resist touching the flocked bunnies on the cover.
Johnson has put together a sweet bedtime story with Are You Ready for Bed? The poor tired Mommy rabbit is happy to get her youngsters tucked in for the night. But as soon as she starts to drift off into her own dreamland she is awakened by her youngest bunny looking for attention. I can’t tell you how many times that has happened to me over the past several years. Though I don’t think I would be kind enough to give my kids warm bubble baths to calm them down. Aren’t I an ogre? 🙂
Gaby Hansen has provided some of the most charming illustrations for this book. The patchwork quilt, the big puffy chair Mrs. Rabbit reclines in, the adorable picture of Little Bunny hugging Mrs. Rabbit that is found on the cover and inside the book, all of them are so cute and will help little ones think of bedtime.
There is so much to love about this book, you’ll want to make Are You Ready for Bed? by Jane Johnson part of your child’s bedtime ritual.

🙂 Thanks. I’m a bit glad that part of my life is gone by…at least I think it is. You never know what God has in mind.
