Baby Sleepyhead’s legs were too loosey-goosey.

Baby Sleepyhead’s tummy was too rumbly.

It was so rumbly that it shook the whole crib. She called her friend the lion. The lion had a roaring contest with her rumbly tummy.

Baby Sleepyhead’s ears were too wiggly.

They were so wiggly that she called the squirrels. The squirrels wiggled all around on her wiggly ears.

And her eyelids! Baby Sleepyhead’s eyelids were too flitter-fluttery.

They were so flitter-fluttery that she called the butterflies. The butterflies landed on her cheeks. Her flitter-fluttery eyelids flipped and flapped against the butterflies’ wings.

No, Baby Sleepyhead could not sleep.

And now she was tired. So tired.

Along came Daddy Sleepyhead in his sleepy-time hat.

“Baby Sleepyhead, there is a zoo in your crib!” Daddy Sleepyhead said.

He told the lion a joke. The lion laughed all the
way back to the jungle.

He raced the squirrels from branch to branch
back to the giant redwood trees.

He whistled a song, and all the butterflies
fluttered back to the flower patch.

Then Daddy Sleepyhead came back to Baby Sleepyhead’s crib.

He scratched her itchy feet. He calmed her loosey-goosey legs. He patted her rumbly tummy. He rubbed her wiggly ears.

And he kissed her flitter-fluttery eyelids. “Goodnight, Baby Sleephead, goodnight.”

Goodnight.
