Sleep Little Tortoise is a delightful story for young children who have trouble settling at bedtime. It is the tale of a cheeky tortoise that is reluctant to hibernate. Going to sleep seems like a very boring idea when there’s so much fun to be had.

After a restless start, the tortoise learns how to use her imagination to carry her into her dream world.  There she discovers that sleep can be anything but boring.

L B Baxter has worked for many years as a children’s photographer. She has always had a passion for writing and has published a philosophical fable for young adults called Oceans Apart. This is her first published children’s picture book.

    This lovely little story brings dreaming alive through lots of nature based images. It captures the fun in dreaming, helpfully making going to bed calming but also enticing. A family favourite.

  • Rachel Wallace

    Such a fun story perfect for talking about sleep and mindfulness with little ones in a positive and cheerful way. The hibernation analogy works brilliantly and we love, love, love all the imagery - especially the talking questions and the cows eating with their knives and forks! Thoroughly recommended.

    This book was recommended by a friend and I bought it for my daughter for Christmas. She much enjoyed it and it is very settling for bedtime. What a lovely, gentle rhyming story with fun pictures. My daughter said 'It is sweet and makes me smile when I read it.

    I bought this book for my grandson's 6th birthday and he really loves it. He has found bedtimes a bit difficult for a while and his mum tells me that this book is helping and is his new favourite bedtime story.

    My sister gave this book to my 4 and 6-year-old children. It's really sweet and has the feel of a classic. They absolutely love it. There's something very calming about the book which makes it a great one to read at bedtime. We all love the rhyming too!

  • Elgitto

    Lovely book. I bought it for my twin nephew and niece for their third birthday. The children loved it and went to sleep happily after the bedtime story. My own daughter, who is seven read it to them and she also loved it. I would definitely recommend it.
