Synopsis from Goodreads
In this engaging, laugh-out-loud funny picture book, a child’s bed tells it like it is.

Bed has something to say.
Bed knows you do not like bedtime.
And Bed gets it. But look …
YOU are not so great, either …

Bed is fed up. Bed’s patience is wearing thin. For years, Bed has put up with the kicking at night, the jumping during the day, not to mention the storing of all manner of stinky items. But enough is enough. Now it’s time to consider Bed’s feelings…

My Thoughts
I really enjoy reading children’s books from time to time so I selected a few from NetGalley that piqued my curiosity. This book was my first choice and it is so cute! Here are my pros and cons for Time for Bed’s Story:


  1. Adorable illustrations. Bed’s “facial expressions” are silly and fun!
  2. It is a delightful story told from the viewpoint of the bed. The synopsis tells you all you need to know about this cute book, but I will add that I think kids will enjoy the different perspective and perhaps even respect their beds a little more in the future!
  3. I loved it when Bed complained about the “stinky” things – bad breath, drool, rotten food, and stinky shoes!!! It is super funny and kids will love it.
  4. It is written with simple, understandable words. There isn’t a lot of text, as with most kid’s picture books, but the story still comes through loud and clear.



I 100% recommend this book! The target age is noted as 3-7 years, but I believe kids and adults of all ages will love this story! I did!

Thank you NetGalley and Kids Can Press for a free eARC of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
