There is no greater ritual than a book before bedtime, (make it more than one) and how about reading a book first thing in the morning too?

In this classic cumulative tale, a wakeful flea causes a big commotion on all the people and creatures sleeping on the bed. With an easy to read repetitive text and detailed expressive illustrations, the tiny flea makes sure that no one is sleeping at the end of this humorous story. Great for learning English too.
Includes a musical CD as well as a gentle recordiing of the tale.
