  • Description

    The worldwide bestselling interactive bedtime book for toddlers.

    This sweet and simple boardbook invites children to take part in Little Rabbit’s charming new bedtime ritual by helping to put bunny to bed with a fun activity on each page.

    It’s getting late and Little Rabbit must go to sleep. Can you help him? When Little Rabbit asks “Tickle My Ears?” a wonderful new bedtime ritual begins: Clap your hands, fluff the pillow, give Little Rabbit’s ears a tickle, stroke his back, pull up the covers and a goodnight kiss. And don’t forget to turn out the light: here’s the switch!

    Designed to be read aloud, this is a fun and surprising book that teaches toddlers and preschoolers about bedtime routines and makes a perfect baby shower or infant birthday gift.

    1. School Library Journal, Top 100 Boardbooks

      Just irresistible. Who doesn’t want a book that teaches a child how to put someone–one’s self, obviously–to bed?

    2. Children’s Books Ireland Reading Guide (UK)

      A beautifully illustrated and delightful book which encourages interaction from the reader.

    3. Outside In World (UK)

      A lovely, fun and engaging board book for bedtime.

    4. Booklist Online

      Mühle’s amiable cartoon illustrations, featuring the bunny alone on soft-hued backgrounds, make every action inviting enough that maybe—fingers crossed—tots might take to bedtime just as seamlessly.

    5. Publishers Weekly (US)

      Soft, crayonlike outlines and some lovely touches (Little Rabbit’s rosy cheeks have the texture of thumbprints) help establish a quiet mood that could help pave the way for smooth bedtimes on readers’ parts, too.

    6. Bookbairn (Scotland)

      This a such a lovely book and would be great for reinforcing bedtime routine with little ones who are, let’s put it politely, resisting! It’s also one of those board books that’s a lovely size for little readers to ‘play’ with by themselves… It’s cute, it’s quirky, it’s interactive. What’s not to love?
