The Bed Book

Sylvia Plath
pictures by Arnold McCully 1976

Who knew Sylvia Plath had written a rhyming children's poem?  A great bedtime read (as you can tell from the title!), it's filled with all sorts of silly, wonderful beds.  A tank bed (for a "cobbledy town"), a hammock, a North-Pole bed made of fur, a submarine bed, or a "Jet-Propelled Bed for visiting Mars with mosquito nets for the shooting stars."  Imaginative and fun, it made us want to invent our own magical sort of bed.  After all, who wants to sleep in "just a white little tucked-in-tight little nighty-night little turn-out-the-light little bed!"?
