The librarians recommended this book, and it's been exactly what I was looking for. It is true that in the last pictures, dad is disassembling the crib and the boy goes to sleep in a twin bed, but the tone of the story is, look how all the little animals are getting bigger and bigger. The newborn turtle gets too big for his shell, the baby gets too big to be carried everywhere, the foal gets so big she needs her own stall. At the end, we tell him, and you got too big to sleep in a crib. It's sad that your crib had to change, but that's part of growing up. There are lots of new and exciting things but it's also sad to leave some things behind.
(Of course, I can't finish the darn book without choking up, so that's a little inconvenient, but not the book's problem.)
In summary: if you're looking for a gentle, monster free book that's appropriate for conversion of a convertible crib, this should work for you.
The book itself is beautiful, with gorgeous illustrations. Plus, it really helps little one see that their bed is just another step. Highly recommend!!
It's still a good read, but not a book I would buy to help a toddler truly understand needing to move to his big boy bed, the connections are a bit hard to make for a child of 18-24 months.
