Billy’s Big-Boy Bed
By Phyllis Limbacher Tildes
Published By Charlesbridge Publishing

Review by: Yvonne Gaudet

     When Billy’s mother and father believe it is time for Billy to graduate to a big-boy bed, Billy feels betrayed! How could they feel that way when his crib was the coziest place Billy knew! The crib was more to Billy than just a place to sleep; it turned into a bus, with Billy as the driver and his stuffed animals as his passengers. Sometimes it was even a pirate ship, with Captain Billy at the helm! Mostly, it was his comfy cozy, special place to curl up with his stuffed animals.
     Then, a few days later, Billy’s mom and dad take him to a furniture store to find the perfect bed for him. The following, day as Billy stood watching, some men brought the bed up to his room and set it up across from his crib. After the men left, Billy watched as his mom put new bedding on the big-boy bed. She asked Billy if he would like to put his stuffed friends on the bed, but he only chose to put his newest animal on the bed. My guess is, Billy hadn’t grown as attached to the new bear yet! That night, at bedtime, Billy crawled into his crib and turned his back on the new bed. It took him longer then usual to fall asleep. The following day, Billy placed two more animals on the bed and had some fun playing on it, however when nighttime approached, Billy again crawled into his little crib. Read the rest of this funny story as Billy overcomes his fears and succeeds in growing up into a big boy! I really enjoyed sharing this book with my daycare children, ages 0-7. They were able to guess what was happening just by looking at the pictures.
     Phyllis Limbacher Tildes, the author and illustrator of this book, shares with us a remarkable piece of work with "Billy’s Big-Boy Bed". The pictures, all of which are bright and beautiful, capture Billy’s true feelings by the expressions on his face. I was drawn to this book, because Billy’s expressions were so life-like and funny.
     I would recommend this great book to ages 0-6, although beginning readers may find it fairly simple to read. The perfect book to give to a big-girl or big-boy, when they are ready to trade in their baby stuff for something a little more age and size appropriate.
     Awesome to own, I know this would make a great addition to everyone’s bookshelf.
