 The little girl is about to tuck herself in when she notices the ``everyone'' else is missing. Running from place to place in her cozy timbered house, she gathers half a dozen toys: her bear from the kitchen (``Silly Max. It's not time to eat! It's time to go to bed!''), a doll from the bookcase, a dragon from the TV, and so on. Last is Daisy, a rubber duck; while she's collecting her from the tub the child also uses the potty and brushes her teeth. The role reversal is a grand way to put the child vicariously in charge of the bedtime ritual. Henry's appealing little girl, scurrying from room to room, recalls Lena Anderson's lively, disarming characters. Simple, repetitive, and reassuring; a perfect bedtime book. (Picture book. 2-6)
