The sun is setting on another day but Rabbit is far too awake to go sleep. So there is only one thing for it…to kidnap the Dark. Armed with a biscuit tin and the last cookie the Dark should be easy to capture and then Rabbit will be able to stay up all night long. But the Dark is more important than Rabbit realises and he is about to learn why…
A lovely bedtime story that explains why night-time and going to sleep is important. Selfish Rabbit only thinks about himself but soon becomes grumpy as tiredness slowly creeps in and he is frustrated when his carrots start to wilt in the sun. With the Dark offering plenty of good reasons why it should be let out of the biscuit tin, it isn’t long before Rabbit sees the light (or in this case the dark) and restores normality to the evening.
The story is peppered with some lovely little educational lessons on the nocturnal creatures that need night and why plants need some time to ‘cool-off’ from the sun. Readers are also shown the importance of sleep on health and well-being - no-one wants to be a grumpy Rabbit.
A lovely read with colourful and interesting illustrations. Perfect for those children who need a little encouragement to turn the light off and to say goodnight.
Recommended for 3+.
