As a little mouse tosses and turns in his bed of dried grasses, he imagines that other animals must surely have better sleeping arrangements. A bird’s nest, a kangaroo’s pouch, a polar bear’s den–they all sound
so cozy . . . at first. But a patient mother mouse helps her little one see why home is best for him.
This mother and child’s loving banter suggests a game that parents and toddlers will quickly add to their own bedtime routines–ensuring sweet dreams for all.
