The Little Elephant Who Wants to Fall Asleep – #FallAsleepwithElephant


One of my favorite things to do when my kids were little was reading them a book at bedtime. Luckily both of my children loved this time as well, and it is something I will always treasure. We had our favorites – some books they liked better than I did, and vice versa. But whatever book we read, we were snuggly, happy, and settled in for the night, ending the day on a good note. Unfortunately my kids were too old when The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep was published, and the same is true of The Little Elephant Who Wants to Fall Asleep. I am especially sad that these two books weren’t around when my daughter was a little one, as she DID NOT like to sleep. Like ever. Maybe these books would have helped?

The good news though, is that I imagine I’ll have grandchildren in the next few years and you can bet that these two books will be ones I will read to them at bedtime – every chance I get. I did receive a copy of both books and let me tell you, they are darling!

We had SO many children’s books, and I have kept a few of our favorites for my future grandchildren {and just because I can’t bear to let them go}. My daughter especially, had a huge assortment of hardcover books, and surprisingly enough, they are still in good condition!

Here are a few books that I will treasure always, that I read to both of my kids. These were our bedtime favorites:

The Little Elephant Who Wants to Fall Asleep is an easy book to love. The lead character, the elephant (Ellen), is absolutely adorable! The book is beautifully illustrated too (by illustrator by Sydney Hanson).
