5 Minutes to Bedtime: An Ollie Adventure

Written by Liz Hansen

A fun look at the challenge of taking the BIG energy from a child’s day and winding it down for bedtime.

A bedtime story to help kids learn that everyone needs rest for tomorrow's adventures.

When Izzy’s father issues a five-minute warning for bedtime, she’s ready to pout—until Ollie the Owl invites her into an epic adventure under her very own bed.

Izzy and Ollie “shrink” in size, meeting up with Izzy’s toys, from her favorite stuffed bunny to a trio of robots who want to learn her basketball skills. It’s all fun and games for Izzy and Ollie… until the robots run low on battery and need to recharge. With a little more help from her feathery friend Ollie, Izzy discovers at last that everyone, big or small, needs a chance to rest and refresh.

Fans of Ollie the Owl from First Look preschool curriculum will delight in this imaginative tale (including parents looking for a positive bedtime spin).
