About the Book


Not if Bessie and Lil can help it! These two rambunctious bunnies are too busy skipping and practicing headstands to go to sleep. Their mother tries to distract them with her favorite bedtime story. But every time she thinks they’re starting to settle down, Bessie and Lil hop back up with a new question or idea. With all the patience of a loving parent, Mama Rabbit gently coaxes her little ones to bed until—finally—they’re tucked in tight. In equal measures funny and sweet, this delightful picture book is a perfect way to end busy days for sleepy little bunnies everywhere.
