Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This beautifully illustrated story tells the tale of Suzy Sue who goes to bed and finds it full of animals from the farm she lives on all complaining that they don't want to sleep in their own beds because variously "It's too hot, it's too cold, it's too dark, it's too light" so she takes them back to their own beds and tells them how to relax and drift to sleep. The book ends by spelling out how everyone (mouse, dog, cat, Suzy Sue!) has their own place to sleep.

It's a really charming story of a good length with a well written and well paced rhyme, and a moral to the story that all parents will be happy to repeatedly share with their children! Definitely recommended and a new favourite in our son's library.

I bought this book to go with a clock and chart to help my grand-daughter to stay in her own bed if she woke, rather than going into mum and dad. The three items together worked well. She Loves this book as it has a picture of her clock in it.
A lovely colourful book, worth the money.

By Mummy of Two TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 23 Oct. 2012
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I absolutely loved this book, it's a bit too old for my son yet but this is definitely going in the keep pile to read to him in a few months time when he's a bit older. There's nothing better than finding a bedtime book which you know your child will enjoy but that you also enjoy reading too. The book is crammed with beautifully bright well drawn, gorgeous illustrations and the subject matter of the book is perfect for bedtime especially if your little one doesn't particularly stay in their own bed. It's written in a rhyming style and I personally really enjoyed it and laughed at a few of the bits of the story such as the pillow part. The story is about Suzy Sue going to bed and finding a goat, a horse, a cow and a sheep in her bed. Suzy Sue has to try and convince the animals to go back to their own bed's. I will definitely be ordering the other books written by Mij Kelly and Mary McQuillan as I can only assume they are as funny and well written as this one. I would definitely recommend this book to other parents.

Edit 15/11/2015:- We have had this book for a few years now and I can confirm that it is still a much loved bedtime book which both my son and now daughter love to listen to at bedtime when chosen.

This book, as with the others in the series ("Atchoo!" and "Where's my Potty?") Are some of the most entertaining pre-school reading I have encountered. Up there with the likes of Giles Andreas' ("Giraffes can't dance", and "The Chimps of Happytown"), in terms of humour, quality of writing, warmth and cleverness.

Written, like the others in such a delightful, out-loud readable, poetic form, this story again recounts the tale of Susie Sue, who attempts to go to bed only to find she has a lot of unwanted company in the form of the cow, horse, sheep and goat from previous tales unwilling to tuck down in their own beds.
The story unfolds in the most humorous fashion as each animal appears from under the covers complaining about their inability to sleep due to the thoughtlessness of the others. So Susie Sue leads them back to their own bed, tucks them in and then explains how it is not just going to bed but falling asleep that is the trick, only to fall asleep in their bed as part of her demonstration. The animals return the favour by carrying her back to her own bed, explaining how each creature has their place to sleep.....the final page exclaiming Susie Sue asleep in her own bed........ AS YOU SHOULD BE TOO !

The illustrations are beautiful, humorous and warm and add so much to the story, my two year old can't get enough of this book, well all three of these authors efforts. And I can't get enough of reading them.

These should become children's classics and I can't recommend highly enough.
Not only being great "tools" to deal with toddlers issues (Potty training, manners, bedtimes) they are books that will stay with you through childhood and be long remembered, and I can't think of higher praise than that.

By Katharine Kirby TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 23 Sept. 2012
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Rhythmic, almost a limerick in form, this big, colourful, well put together book is funny and entertaining both for child and adult reader. Differing text fonts emphasise and reinforce the words. Our eighteen month grandson adores it and asks for it every night - 'My Own!' he calls it.

Identifying animals is a good game; the illustrations are bright and clear, easily recognisable with their jolly, large faces. Being so cheerful in style, with captivating sizable square pages, the small child absorbs the book and becomes absorbed in it.

My 3 year old loves this book, and we're slowly getting there with her staying in her own bed. It's not an overnight thing, but it has definitely helped us.
