Where Shall I Sleep Tonight?
- About the Author & Illustrator
Young children are naturally afraid of and anxious about unfamiliar places and people. After being cocooned too long with family and a comforting routine under Covid restrictions, the ability to now move freely about and interact – even in school, child or foster care – ironically heightens these unsettling feelings.
This thoughtfully written and sensitively illustrated story follows a bunny as she goes from relative to relative and from neighbour to friend to stay, making her own adventure in a less than ideal situation. In the process, she learns about looking after herself and thinking about the needs of others.
This book encourages children to be positive, adaptable and resilient in the face of challenges and the unknown.
