Wenn Kuscheltiere schlafen gehn

When Cuddly Toys Go To Sleep

Pulling, pushing, eyes shut! Which animal goes to sleep? Eating porridge, brushing teeth, singing a lullaby – and before they know it, the cuddly toys’ eyes are falling shut. When the children pull the slide elements on every double page, one by one they send the teddy, the giraffe, the rabbit, the penguin and the crocodile off to sleep. Now there’s only one person still awake. The cuddly kiddy him or herself, who can now also curl up and go to sleep, just like the animals! A counting rhyme to join in with and a goodnight book that’s sure to become a favourite!
