Title: The Bedtime Boat
Post by: DellaRF on December 10, 2017, 03:00 PM
An early Christmas present! My poem "The Bedtime Boat" was an 'Editor's Pick' for the current issue of Ladybug, in which Kathleen Anderson wrote, "With irresistibly bouncy rhymes—“Jammies on. It’s time to float. / Hop aboard the bedtime boat!”—this decidedly un-sleepy poem invites children to take a ride through a dreamy Arctic landscape..."
Here's the link to their facebook post:

And here's the link if you'd like to read the poem.  I love Stephanie Dehennin's illustrations!

Congratulations! 

I read this one a couple of times to my daughter and didn't realize it was yours. It's a lovely bedtime story!

Great words and illustrations.  There's so many bedtime-related books and poems that it is hard I think to do a fresh take on it... but you did! All aboard the bedtime boat!
