This is a good short read for before bedtime. Great for kiddos who are having a tough time staying in bed each night and like to "tip-toe" into their parents room. It reminds them that they have all their friends/stuffed animals to keep them company in bed each night so they can stay in their own room.
This book features a mom, dad, and baby sibling.

"Ed loved getting ready for bed...but Ed hated staying in bed..." In this story, Ed keeps getting out of his big boy bed and joining his parents in bed. He keeps them from sleeping well because of his tossing and turning. Ed wakes his parents up every night and finally they get frustrated enough to make a plan. They close their door at night and Dad escorts Ed back to bed. Dad reassures Ed who piles all his stuffed animals in his bed and falls fast asleep.

First, I love the wording of this story. "He played games with Dad, clip clop." There are sound words to accompany actions throughout the book. Mom and Dad go through a wonderful bedtime routine to reassure Ed that he is loved. The illustrations are adorable even in their simplicity.

My only difficulty was when the parents yelled at Ed. They had every right to be upset. They were tired and cranky. But I would have liked to see them tell Ed that they were frustrated and that there was a new bedtime plan. Ed, facing a closed door at night, was a bit traumatized. Otherwise mom and dad did every thing right throughout this book. I think a wise parent can modify the wording on this part of the book to make it excellent. The part where Ed snuggles with his stuffed animals is adorable.
