Edwin the Elephant’s First Night Alone


2023 NYC BBA Distinguished Favorite

Edwin the Elephant's First Night Alone is a children's book that helps kids (and their parents) transition from co-sleeping to sleeping independently. Edwin loves sleeping with his parents, but as he gets older, he needs more space. His parents are confident that he's ready to move to his own room, but Edwin isn't so sure. They help him ease into the transition by taking it one step at a time. Once Edwin learns the joy of sleeping alone, he doesn't want to go back. The book is educational and fun for kids and parents alike. It includes a bonus page with practical advice on transitioning from co-sleeping from a seasoned nanny and certified parent coach.
