Peter Rabbit is Growing Up

Everyone's favorite little bunny is growing to be a big bunny and Mom feels that it is time for Peter Rabbit to have his own room and to sleep in his own bed. Good Night Peter is a new addition in board book form for little ones to the Peter Rabbit collection. Peter has slept in the room with Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail for a long time. All three sisters are now bigger and the room is now too small for all of the little bunnies to share. Peter is very reluctant to move into his own room because he will be all alone. His sisters will no longer be there to share the night with. Mrs. Rabbit begins to prepare a new room. She is busy cleaning a new space for Peter's new room. The room turns out to be very big and there is plenty of room for Peter to stretch out and sleep. However, there is a problem just after he closes his eyes. A noise! Peter is all alone and that noise is scary! Peter jumps out of bed and runs into his sisters' room. But the beds are still too small and the problem is still there. Mom creates a surprise for Peter to take to bed with him for the next night. Young readers will enjoy the ending when Peter takes his surprise to bed with him and easily falls asleep now in his own bed.

Good Night Peter was published by Frederick Warne & Co., a division of Penguin/Random House, and is a delightful and current addition to the collection of Peter Rabbit tales. Illustrations feature familiar and beloved rabbit characters. The Frederick Warne & Co. owns the copyrights and trademarks in the Beatrix Potter characters and parents who grew up with Peter Rabbit tales will appreciate this new addition to the collection to share with their little ones. This delightful new bedtime story is recommended for ages 3-8 and has an ISBN of 9780241342060.

Good Night Peter for the Early Childhood Classoom

This delightful bedtime story with the beloved character Peter Rabbit is also a great board book to keep handy in an infant or toddler classroom in a childcare center. Naps and rest periods are challenging when the little ones are reluctant to take time for a daily nap or rest period. Childcare teachers/caregivers will find this new addition to the Peter Rabbit collection to be a useful tool in getting the little ones to settle down for a nap or rest period during the day. Little ones will want to hear this story many times as they learn to take time for rest.

*Read Good Night Peter in a group reading session before getting ready for the scheduled rest period in the classroom. Call attention to the way that Mrs. Rabbit is cleaning and getting Peter's new room ready. Preschool children always put away their toys and get mats and blankets ready for the scheduled rest period in their classrooms. Teachers/caregivers can remind their young students about getting ready for naps or rest periods in cleaning up their toys.

*Mom has a new surprise for Peter to sleep with. Invite children to bring their favorite stuffed animal to class to share with others and to share in the group story time session. What kinds of stuffed animals do children love? Teachers can create a class chart with pictures of everyone's favorite stuffed animal for cuddling at nap or rest-time.

*Children who do not sleep might like to have this sturdy board book on their mat to enjoy alone during the scheduled rest period.
