B has been a big fan of bedtime music since she moved into her crib. Her music machine plays a selection of soft, calming lullabies and now, more often than not, she sings along with her own toddler words…loudly.


(Husband & I are currently questioning how much longer she will “need” her music…)

Cue Sleepyheads, a calming bedtime book with soft, dark colors to help put your little singer in the mood for sleep.

In this peaceful, rhyming board book, your little one gets to peek at nine animals asleep in their own special place. A bird in her nest, a bear cozy in his cave, and, near the sleeping cat, the family dog prefers a comfy rug beside the fireplace. While gently reading Sleepyheads to your special sleepyhead, you can almost feel the quiet. Hopefully, your little one won’t be able to resist settling down.

Fingers crossed for you, friend.
