Penny Dale's cozy take on a favorite nursery rhyme takes on new charm in a board book edition with an appealing new cover.
"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 boy's bed with a bang, a thump, or a plop until . . . "I'm cold I miss you " the boy says, and back in the bed they all go. In a sturdy board book begging many repeat readings, Penny Dale's popular rendition of this childhood song is as warm and toasty as a feather bed.
"Very young children will love exploring the detailed pictures and sounding the different noises that each animal makes when falling out of the bed." Practical Parenting"
