ABOUT THE BOOK
Bed has something to say.
Bed knows you do not like bedtime.
And Bed gets it. But look ...
YOU are not so great, either ...
Bed is fed up. Bed's patience is wearing thin. For years, Bed has put up with the kicking at night, the jumping during the day, not to mention the storing of all manner of stinky items. But enough is enough. Now it's time to consider Bed's feelings ...
In a story that's never been told before, Monica Arnaldo's hilarious picture book explores the point of view of an unusual narrator: a child's bed. Irreverent and full of personality, Arnaldo's Bed is also full of love and compassion, making for a relatable and, ultimately, endearing story. This playful and highly original book offers a lighthearted way to approach discussions on communication, perspective and viewpoint. It can be used to promote critical thinking in young children and an understanding that there are at least two sides to every story. It also contains character education lessons on compassion, respect and empathy.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR/ILLUSTRATOR
Monica Arnaldo is the author of several picture books, and her illustrations have also appeared in middle grade novels and children’s magazines. The New York Times called her latest book, Time For Bed’s Story, “...a stroke of conceptual genius... [with] the snappy, subversive logic of a Jerry Seinfeld stand-up routine”. She lives with her husband in Quebec, Canada, and their two children, who don’t know who Jerry Seinfeld is. Website: monica-arnaldo.com Instagram + Twitter: @monicarnaldo
