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.

My almost 2.5 year old daughter regularly asks for this as a bed time story. She loves the story, especially when I do a silly voice for each character. The story is interesting and engaging and ends up with the main character (a little girl called Susie Sue) sleeping in her own bed. This opens up a discussion with my little girl about her being in her own bed, and she will happily go to sleep in her own bed (although not necessarily stay there all night!).

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.

We bought this book at the same time we bought our 3 year old son a clock that changes colour when he can get out of bed. He was in our bed every night and now a few months later he doesn't come into bed with us at all in the night. If it was the book or the clock or just his age, who can say. I do like the concept of this book and it's fun and well written and engaging for young children. It's worth a try if your child just can't stay in their bed.

Not as good as I've lost my potty!

But Still a good story. With the way the words are written it's a bit difficult to work out which animal is talking. If like me you like to. Do voices for each one it's not the easiest to follow.

I bought this to encourage my two year old to start spending more time in his own bed trather than Mummy and Daddy's bed. The book has become a firm favourite at bedtime for my son and it may be a coincidence but he is definitely sleeping better in his own bed. And has actually started to sleep right the way through on some nights.

Sent to California for my 2year old granddaughter, who got up every night to climb into parents bed and kick dad out.
(Best contraceptive ever)
Obviously took the message 'on board' and is staying in her own bed.
