Go Sleep in Your Own Bed! by Candace Fleming - ADVISABLE

Fleming, Candace Go Sleep in Your Own Bed! illustrated by Lori Nichols. PICTURE BOOK. Schwartz & Wade Books (Random House), 2017. $17.99. 

Its nighttime on the farm, and when Pig heads to sleep in his sty he finds Cow already there. He sends Cow along to her own bed, and a chain-reaction begins as none of the animals are in their own beds. Cow sends Chicken to her bed, Chicken sends Horse to his and on and on until Cat finds a comfy place to sleep and the farm can finally settle down. 

There is not much to dislike about this fun picture book. The illustrations are bit cartoon-y and the color scheme is in subdued blues, making it calming and perfect for an evening read. Animal sounds are incorporated into the simple text, and younger readers will enjoy picking out what animal was in the wrong bed each time. I think this will be a popular choice for bedtime reading.
