Five New Bedtime Books

Bedtime books are an essential part of every home and public library collection. Here I've highlighted five new 2017 bedtime books that shouldn't be missed!

Go Sleep in Your Own Bed
Candace Fleming / Lori Nichols

In this riotous picture book from Fleming and Nichols, Pig finds Cow in the the pigsty and exclaims "go sleep in your own bed!" When Cow crawls into his bed, he finds another misplaced animal! The silly refrain of "go sleep in your own bed!" provides humor and engages young listeners. A must-have!

Where Do Jet Planes Sleep at Night?
Brianna Caplan Sayres / Christian Slade

Sayres and Slade team up again, this time focusing on different types of airplanes and air transportation! Like in their previous books, Where Do Diggers Sleep at Night? and Where Do Steam Trains Sleep at Night?, the rhyming story makes a fantastic read aloud. Little readers will find familiar and new airplanes to love in Slade's illustrations.

I Just Want to Say Good Night
Rachel Isadora

In this gorgeously illustrated picture book from Isadora, a young girl named Lala postpones bedtime as she says good night to her surroundings. From fish, to monkey,  to book, to goat, Lala's repetitive good night message will lull your little one to sleep. Isadora's depiction of Lala's African village is done primarily in a warm pink, which is appropriately soothing.
If Your Monster Won't Go to Bed
Denise Vega / Zachariah OHora

Vega and OHora spotlight the nightly rituals of a little girl and her monster in this rambunctious bedtime book! OHora's distinct style is on full display in this story; readers will love the interactions between the girl and her monster. A fun take on bedtime from a distinctly not-scary monster.

Way Past Bedtime
Tara Lazar / Rich Wake
IndieBound / Amazon

One boy comes up with a clever plan to uncover all the fun adults have once the kids have gone to bed for the night. Wake's illustrations are bold and colorful, pairing perfectly with Lazar's relateable tale about a boy determined to uncover a long-held mystery. Little Joseph's feline partner is utterly charming.
