At One Fine Baby we believe in the power books have to grow a child’s imagination and creativity, and develop their language and learning skills. Books also help kids become aware of the world around them and can be a wonderful tool to explain emotional concepts too.

The soon to be released in Australia, The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep: A New Way of Getting Children to Sleep is a best-selling book is one such tool. It has become the best friend of parents around the world at bedtime and is turning the nightly bedtime battle into a loving and special end-of-day ritual. The story is child-tested and parent-approved and uses innovative techniques that bring clam to the end of any child’s day.
