Synopsis

At Isaac's first sleepover, he gets to help Grandpop with a very special routine - putting the house to bed - in a story that's just right for children visiting a new place, or for adopting a new ritual at home.



Isaac is excited about having a sleepover at Grandpop's house, but he's a little nervous about being away from home for the first time. Luckily, his knowing Grandpop tells him it's not quite time to go to bed yet - first, he needs Isaac's help in putting the house to bed. Quietly and slowly, they move from room to room, turning out lights and pulling down shades, as Grandpop gently explains the night-time sounds that Isaac finds unfamiliar. Now it's time to read the house a bedtime story (Isaac is good at reading the pictures). By the time the house is settled in for the night, Isaac and Grandpop are ready for bed, too.



Janet Costa Bates's tender story and A. G. Ford's cosy illustrations will have families - and extended families or friends - eager to take a wise Grandpop's cue and embrace a new night-time tradition.
