Everyone is Asleep But Me

About the Book

Diana Yacobi’s daughter, Lily, was telling her about how their toddler was waking up in the middle of the night, as most toddlers do. He had just transitioned from a crib to a junior-sized bed. He would appear in his parents’ room and request to sleep in their bed. A squirming child and parents who wake up often in the middle of deep sleep was not a good arrangement. Nobody got a good night’s rest.

Sleepy Bear, by example, teaches kids why it’s a good idea to go back to sleep in their own bed.
