‘What’s the secret of sleep?’ wonders a wide-awake Little Chick. With the bright moon by her side she sets sail on a journey of discovery, making many new friends along the way. Can they help her find the secret to a good night’s sleep?
It’s nighttime and all of Little Chick’s family is fast asleep. All except Little Chick. Why can’t she get to bed? There must be something everyone else knows that she doesn’t and she is ready to go out into the night and figure out the mystery to sleep. She is sure there must be some secret to all of it! What I really love about this story is that for each animal family Little Chick encounters, the animals are more than happy to show her how they fall asleep. Each animal does something a little bit different to get some shut eye, and Little Chick’s list starts to get a little long. In fact, Little Chick is feeling a little sleepy herself now! Little Chick is finally ready for bed next to all her wonderful friends and thinks she has FINALLY discovered the secret of sleep. Is your list the same as Little Chick’s? This book is adorable and sweet and a perfect nighttime book for my toddler. Love it!
