We’ve all seen the parenting memes about lack of sleep and kids hogging 90% of their parents’ bed when they crawl in during the night.
Just this week, I was out with a friend who was telling me the story of trying to put her 2-year-old down for the night, only to have her crying at her bedroom door just a few hours later, begging to come in and climb into bed with her and her husband.
If this sounds familiar to you, we recommend you check out The Big Bed, our first book suggestion of the new year.
This laugh-out-loud picture book features a girl who doesn’t want to sleep in her little bed, but wants to be in her parents’ big bed. As many young children do, she finds a creative solution to her problem. She gifts her dad with his own bed–a camping cot!
How does the story end?
