Lots of children have trouble falling asleep. Sometimes, they lie awake in bed, listening to the noises around them and thinking their own thoughts.
In Bedtime, a little boy named Dovid finds himself in just such a situation.
Although he got ready for bed, said Shema, and had Mommy tuck him in, sleep just won’t come!
Could it be the splish splash of running water, the hum of the mixer or the sound of Mommy talking on the phone that is keeping Dovid awake?
Will it help to have a drink of water, his toy car, or one more bedtime song? Finally, Mommy understands that her little boy is simply feeling lonely… and Dovid realizes Who is always with him!
The soft and dreamy pastel illustrations make Bedtime a comforting book to read before turning out the lights.
