Beloved Bunny Peter Rabbit is Ready for His Own Room in a New Bedtime Story
Delightful New Addition to the Peter Rabbit Collection for Bedtime Reading
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.
