How do you get a marmot to sleep?

Mommy and Daddy Marmot are desperately trying to get their little one to sleep. After all, marmots love to sleep! All of them except this one, that is. After every bedtime story, he cries out “Just one more!” And after every good night kiss, he is wide awake. All the animals in the forest offer well-meaning advice to Daddy Marmot, but nothing seems to be working. But wait! Look at that! On their way from house to house, from nest to nest, the impossible happens: the marmot child actually falls asleep.

• The perfect reading for bed-time rituals
• Parents can tell you a thing or two about this: the never-ending topic of going to sleep
