At last—a bedtime book that is rhythmic and soothing, but also filled with fun.

Nighttime has come, and the little bunnies are in bed. Good night, good night, sleep tight.

But wait, what's that noise? Chuga-chuga-chuga. Sounds like the bunnies have left their beds. Mama and Daddy come to their room and lay down the law. No more tracks, no more trains, they say. And all is quiet until . . . zoom, zoom, vroom! Sounds like the bunnies are at it again. Will Mama and Daddy ever get them to sleep? Or will the parents fall asleep first— exhausted? And then what will those mischievous bunnies get into?

Review: The Bunnies Are Not In Their Beds

User Review  - Tammy Aman - Goodreads

My son's favorite book! A lot of repetition so he (at 18 months) can "read" along, follow the rhythms, and enjoy the adorable illustrations. I think some reviewers are a bit uptight, I'm sure they aren't fans of Harold and his purple crayon either. Read full review

Review: The Bunnies Are Not In Their Beds

User Review  - Linda Starr - Goodreads

It's a cute idea incorporating bunnies and sounds. I didn't like that there was no discipline for the bunnies though and made it seem like they can wait till the parents are asleep and create more havoc. Read full review
