Description

When Willa can't sleep, her big brother Willoughby tells her to think of all the happy things waiting for her to wake up to in the morning. There are her slippers waiting for her feet to slip into them, her jumpsuit waiting for her to jump out of bed, and her breakfast waiting to be eaten. Willa can’t sleep, and after tossing and turning, she asks Willoughby if he is asleep. It seems Willa is afraid of having bad dreams. After Willoughby points out many things that make Willa happy, she falls asleep, cuddling her stuffed bear. Joyce grew up in an industrial town in Lincolnshire. Her father was a steelworker. When she was seven the family moved from a slum to a prefab. They thought it was a palace. She spent much of her childhood running wild, building rafts and making dens in forbidden iron ore quarries, which they called 'The Valleys.' She began to go deaf at the age of five. This adorable little book, Tell Me Something Happy Before I Go to Sleep, by Joyce Dunbar, “What do you do when your little bunny is afraid of bad dreams, and just can’t get to sleep?” Well, the answer is to think of happy things, of course. Even kids without brothers or sisters will snuggle up to this endearing bedtime read."— Child Magazine

If ever there were a perfect bedtime book, this has to be it" ( Guardian)JOYCE DUNBAR has written more than fifty books for children, including The Very Small and This Is the Star. She lives in Norwich, England. She has had lots of jobs, paper girl, market trader, petrol pump attender, soda syphon promoter, nanny, waitress, barmaid, clerical assistant, playpark leader. She never expected to be a writer. Much to her surprise, she passed some exams and went to University - Goldsmith's College, London. This is such a wonderful book for kids! I started reading it for mine when my youngest was a toddler 5 years ago. At almost 8 years old, he still wants me to read it on nights when he feels scared, which has been quite often over the past few months of 2022. It really helps calm him down.
