It's almost bedtime At 1 Hoppin Place the fun begins when a family of hamsters-with ten offspring wearing jerseys numbered from one to ten-arrives at the door. There are only ten minutes left, and there's still so much to do But with the help of the Hamsters' 10-Minute Bedtime Tour (guided by his own pet hamster), the little boy is able to get his toys put away, his pajamas on, his teeth brushed, and his bedtime story read-all in the nick of time. This lively introduction to bedtime rituals and the concept of counting backwards will have young readers eagerly awaiting their own countdown to bedtime.
