Goodnight Everyone, by Chris Haughton

"A series of exquisitely coloured cut pages of increasing size introduce woodland families - bears, deer, rabbits and teeny, tiny mice - who are all beginning to feel really tired! 'Dear me', says Great Big Bear, 'it must be time for bed!'. But Little Bear is certainly not sleepy - he's wide awake!"

Silver, by Carolina Rabei & Walter de la Mare

Sleep Solutions: quiet nights for you and your child: from birth to five years, by Rachel Waddilove

The Gentle Sleep Solution, by Chireal Shallow

"The Gentle Sleep Solution shows you the powerful yet gentle way to help your baby enjoy a good night's sleep. Drawing on CBT and mindfulness, it moves away from outdated approaches to ensure that your child feels comforted, reassured and loved as they drift off to sleep."
