Bunny should be sleeping / Amy Hest ; pictures by Renata Liwska.

Hest, Amy, (author.). Liwska, Renata, (illustrator.).


"Bunny should be sleeping, but instead, he is waiting for Dad to come check on him. Dad always checks on him, but tonight, Dad is late. Soon Dad will come. He will come in the night to check on his little Bunny. Come on, Dad! Check on me, check on me, check on me! Bunny can't wait anymore--he needs his dad! Slipping out of bed, Bunny packs a wagon of everything Dad might need: some water, a blanket, a snack, and their favorite book to share. Down the hall and through the dark, Bunny finds Dad fast asleep, oblivious to all the supplies Bunny offers him. At last, Bunny resorts to a tap on the nose to wake Dad up. Dad checks on Bunny, and Bunny checks on Dad, who is happy to see him, if still groggy. They read their special book, and all is right with the world again. Sure to soothe children dubious about staying in their rooms alone at night, Bunny Should Be Sleeping reminds young readers that they are safe and loved even when the house is dark and quiet." -- Provided by publisher.
