Jed's crib is safe and familiar . . . and too small. But the big-kid bed his family has just brought in is too big-and too new and blue! With bedtime so near, just what will Jed do? He decides he won't EVER sleep in that bed that's so different and tall. If he ever fell out, he might roll down the hall!

Jed's family pitches in with a plan that helps him see that his new bed is just right for the big boy he's become. And any young child facing a change will easily see their own feelings and experiences reflected in this warmly-told tale of a childhood milestone.
