How this book might help: May comfort a child who is experiencing bad dreams or who is afraid of the dark.

Little bunny Willa is scared to go to sleep as she's worried she may have a bad dream. Big brother Willoughby comforts her by pointing out lots of happy things to think of: her chicken slippers just waiting for her feet; the tasty food in the larder waiting to be made into breakfast; the darkness outside waiting for morning to break. Willoughby mentions that the morning loves to wake Willa up, but it can't because Willa won't go to sleep. The brother and sister snuggle up together and Willa falls fast asleep.

Things we liked about this book: Beautiful illustrations which skilfully show the affection between the siblings.
