Bye-Bye Crib

Change can be scary, especially if you think a monster is part of the change! Bye-Bye Crib by Alison McGhee is a brand new picture book about a little boy growing out of his crib and moving to a new bed. He's happy to be a big boy which means no bottle and no diaper but then Mom and Dad inform him that it also means no more crib! That new bed looks like a monster bed and he's worried he might get lost in the sheets or that his cover will fall off the edge and he'll freeze. Mom and Dad encourage him to be brave so he first moves his blankie to the new bed, then his pillow and finally makes the jump himself with Baby Kitty. If you have a little one about to make this change, this is a must read that will help with the transition.
