the Bedtime Bunny

This award-winning children’s book motivates young kids to go to bed – and stay there – using the power of magic (and occasional rewards!). In this engaging and fun story, children learn why all the magic creatures need them to stay in their beds, even the unicorns and baby dragons.

After reading the book, children leave the included carrot outside their front door, with their names and bedtimes on the back. A magic Bedtime Bunny will come hopping while they are asleep, and might leave little surprises for them to find in the mornings (but only if the kids are in their beds!).

Now Available!

This beautiful 10″ x 10″ hardcover book is now available! Each book includes a glittery magic carrot for children to leave out for their bunny.

Such a fun and engaging story! My kids love finding the carrot on each page, and I love the way it incentivizes them to get to bed on time with just occasional rewards.

How it Works

The Bedtime Bunny uses the evidence-based behavior strategy of positive reinforcement to motivate young children to stay in bed.

  1. After reading the book, children write their names and bedtimes on the back of the sparkly carrot (included), and leave it by the door.
  2. If the children are in bed, a magic bedtime bunny will come hopping and leave a little surprise, maybe a note or treat.
  3. Over time, rewards become less frequent once good bedtime behaviors are established.
