“The sun is setting, so it's time for a little bunny to snuggle up and prepare for bedtime! As his mama sings him a lullaby, our little bunny friend is taken on a vivid tour of all the wonderful things he will dream about when he is asleep. Betsy Snyder's lullaby rhyme is gentle and soothing, perfect for coaxing active toddlers to sleep, and her artwork is fantastic. This is the perfect book to read together when it's time to tuck your child in!”
