Back to Bed, Ed!

Sebastien Braun

Transitioning a little one from a crib to a toddler bed? This award-winning bedtime book is just for you!

At bedtime, Ed plays silly games with Dad. He has a drink and brushes his teeth. He takes a bath and cuddles with Mom for a bedtime story. Then Ed is off to bed with hugs and kisses.

But night after night he tiptoes down the hall and climbs into Mom and Dad's big bed. Mom and Dad aren't getting much sleep, so they come up with a plan to keep Ed in his bed. Ed doesn't think much of Mom and Dad's plan―so he comes up with one on his own!

Parents transitioning their little ones from cribs to toddler beds will immediately relate to Sebastien Braun's charming spin on the perennial challenge of getting young children to stay in bed.
