Bedtime can be a scary time, a restless time, or a sleepy time, but ultimately it is a comforting time. This special collection of bedtime stories by Jim Aylesworth perfectly captures the charm and magic of different kinds of bedtimes. In Two Terrible Frights, a girl and a mouse experience similar scares while getting a bedtime snack. In Teddy Bear Tears, a boy comforts his slightly sniffling stuffed animal friends before they all go to sleep. The Completed Hickory Dickory Dock is a new twist on a familiar rhyme about a rambunctious romp through the hours of a day up until bedtime. And The Good-Night Kiss is a poetic, gentle lullaby of the sights and sounds outside the window where a child is safely tucked into bed.

Read apart or together, these bedtime stories will be shared and treasured by children and adults every night of the week.
