Goodnight, Me by:Andrew Daddo
Echoing the loving goodnight rituals that will be familiar to many parent and child, Andrew Daddo's gentle text, with softly hued illustrations by Emma Quay, is just the thing for coaxing an active toddler or preschooler to sleep.
Jake Stays Awake by:Michael Wright
Jake can't sleep. He climbs into bed with his mom and dad. Now Jake's parents can't sleep. Even the dog is awake. This family needs a good night's rest. Where can they sleep? The answer will delight and reassure children and their (sleep-deprived) parents!
Songs
Hush Little Baby
Hush, little baby, don't say a word,
Mama's gonna buy you a mockingbird.

If that mockingbird don't sing,
Mama's gonna buy you a diamond ring.

If that diamond ring turns to brass,
Mama's gonna buy you a looking glass.

If that looking glass gets broke,
Mama's gonna buy you a billy-goat.

If that billy-goat won't pull,
Mama's gonna buy you a cart and bull.

If that cart and bull turns over,
Mama's gonna buy you a dog named Rover.

If that dog named Rover won't bark,
Mama's gonna buy you a horse and cart.

If that horse and cart falls down,
You'll still be the sweetest little baby in town.
