Ten in the Bed

By Penny Dale | Ages 2-5

*Celebrating 35 years!*

My thoughts: This delightful retake on the much loved nursery song "Ten in the Bed" is absolutely charming. And it has stood the test of time. The illustrations are sweet, utterly delightful, and captivating. Lots of motion in the pictures. Lots of critters to delight. Lots of fun.

And the idea of ten in the bed goes back many years to a time when families were large, beds few and crowded, and space extremely limited. A bit of a jolly song not to make fun of the situation but to lend a light-heartedness to one of the facts of life as it existed at the time for many. 

So the little one said, "Roll over, roll over..... and...." 

About the book: Penny Dale’s cozy take on a classic nursery rhyme, in a charming paperback edition. Secret word: anniversary

There were ten in the bed and the little one said, “Roll over, roll over!” So they all rolled over and Hedgehog fell out . . .

One by one, nine friends roll over and fall out of a child’s bed with a bang, a thump, or a plop until . . . “I’m cold! I miss you!” the child says, and back in the bed they all go—Sheep, Rabbit, Elephant, and more. Thirty-five years after it was first published, Penny Dale’s endearing picture book continues to be a favorite—an essential rendition of a childhood song that is as warm and toasty as a feather bed.
