Go Sleep in Your Own Bed! by Candace Fleming and illustrated by Lori Nichols

This is a fun bedtime book set on a farm with an ending that makes the book. Pig is ready for bed, but when he lays down in his sty, he finds Cow already there. “Go sleep in your own bed!” Pig tells Cow. Cow “clompety-stomps” to her stall, where she finds Hen in her bed and so on and so on until Dog tells Cat, “Go sleep in your own bed!” When Cat settles down on the porch, the little girl who lives in the farmhouse comes out and picks up Cat and they snuggle down to sleep in the girl’s bed, making for a sweet and satisfying ending. Young children will enjoy the repetition and onomatopoeia and anticipating which animal they will next find in the wrong bed.
