The Going to Bed Book

A three-part installment of Zoe reading Sandra Boynton's The Going to Bed Book.

Here is the text in case you aren't part of the cult following of Boynton books.

The sun has set not long ago.
Now everybody goes below
to take a bath in one big tub
with soap all over--SCRUB SCRUB SCRUB!

They hang their towels on the wall
and find pajamas,
big and small.

With some on top
and some beneath
they brush and brush
and brush their teeth.

And when the moon is on the rise,
they all go up
to exercise!

And down once more,
but not so fast,
they're on their way
to bed at last.

The day is done.
They say good night,
and somebody
turns off the light.

(and the part she leaves out...)
The moon is high.
The sea is deep.
They rock
and rock
and rock
to sleep.
