When the World Is Ready for Bed

When the World Is Ready for Bed
By Gillian Shields, illustrated by Anna Currey
Bloomsbury, 2009

This book/board book is a quiet, rhyming bedtime story.  We follow a family of three young bunnies as they come in from play.  They eat supper, clean up their toys and talk together with their mother about their day.  They wash their teeth and prepare for bed, listen to a story, and say their prayers. They gaze out the window at the shining star that will guard them through the night and go to bed to sleep.  They are left to dream and look forward to the next day.  Illustrated in lovely watercolors this charming tale will send a child gently off to dreamland.
