A Bedtime Story
by Denise Gassner

As young children grow, their bedtime rituals morph and change. This beautiful rhyming story takes you on a journey through early childhood, from nursing in the dark to monsters in the closet and that last cup of water. Sweet, soothing, and achingly beautiful, A Bedtime Story is a wonderfully relatable read for parents no matter which part of the bedtime journey they're currently on. There is nothing more precious than a sleeping child, but for so many families, the path to sleep comes with insecurities and overwhelm. We all navigate the bedtime dance with our young children. But through every struggle, one thing remains true: the love and connection between you and your little one will guide you through.

Denise Gassner has a PhD in Biology and Anthropology, and has been researching and teaching on various aspects of behaviour for over a decade. She turned her attention to sleep after becoming a mom to her own little sleep monsters and being both fascinated and perplexed by how unnatural sleep can feel in those early years. As a researcher, an educator, and a mom, Denise is driven to help make sleep less of a mystery for new parents. Through her gentle and developmentally-informed approach, she has supported hundreds of parents in discovering a sleep groove that adheres to their unique parenting styles and family values. Denise lives in beautiful Squamish, British Columbia, with her husband, two children, and their pup (who has no trouble sleeping). Learn more about Denise's sleep resources and support at
