From the New York Times bestselling author of Miss Brooks Loves Books! (and I don't) comes a gentle bedtime book that includes a proven relaxation technique parents can use to help their little ones go to sleep after an exciting day.

The sun has set and dinner is done, but Fiona is still excited about the day and is not at all ready for bed.

So her mom helps her settle down with their nightly ritual of sending each part of her--from her toes to her nose--off to sleep. As Fiona relaxes her body, she recalls a marvelous day at the beach where feet were for stomping in the waves, legs were for running after cousins, tummy was for holding strawberries, and arms were for catching beach balls. And bit by bit, memory by memory, Fiona slips from a great day into a good night.

Barbara Bottner and Maggie Smith create an action-packed day to remember and provide parents with a wonderful technique for helping their own busy little ones drift peacefully off to sleep.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "After a long, active day at the seaside, it's bedtime for Fiona, but despite Mama saying that she must be tired, this girl still feels a bit bouncy. Luckily, she knows how to calm down. She lies down in bed and begins: Toes, go to sleep says Fiona, recalling how they gripped her flip-flops as she walked to the beach. Next she sends her feet to sleep, remembering how she stomped in the waves. Then her knees, legs, tummy . . . you can see where this is going, right up to Fiona's ears and, finally, her active monkey mind. Moving easily from bedtime conversation and Fiona's calming self-talk to her activities that day and the sounds drifting in through her window at night, Bottner's simple text is sensory-rich and evocative. Smith's richly colored illustrations, created using watercolor, gouache, fabric, and digital media, give the book a very accessible look, while linking the present and past elements of the narrative together effectively. A fine bedtime book that may actually help kids go to sleep.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2010 Booklist"
