Bedtime for Buttons by Amber Stewart, illustrated by Layn Marlow

Amber Stewart is quickly becoming one of my favorite picture book authors! I absolutely adore this book about keeping bad dreams away.

Button had a very busy day playing with his sisters that when bedtime comes he's eager to go to sleep. . . that is until he remembers the scary tree-bear he saw that day. With thoughts of the tree-bear in his head, Button searches for a way to keep the bad dreams away. Button's daddy, quickly come to the rescue and tells Button of one day when absolutely nothing scary happened-- the day Button was born.

Amber Stewart consistantly brings an adorable idea to life in her books. I think this book is totally storytime worthy and also great for a parent-child bonding moment.
