A boy remembers his visits to his Grandma with his other cousins when he was a “little bitty boy just off the floor.” The best thing about the trip was her great big feather bed that he would have traded his whole family for.

“I love it all.”

“Conner, do you think it was a fun bed?”

“It’s a silly bed. I see piggies right there jumping up with the other dogs.

“Do you think you’d be able to sleep with 8 kids, pigs and 4 dogs in the same bed?”

“No.”

“Would you like a feather bed?”

“No.”

“Would you trade your family for a feather bed?”

“No.”

“Why not?”

“Because I don’t like feather beds and I don’t have geese to build a feather bed.”

Parent’s Comment:
“Grandma’s Feather Bed” is a fun tale with silly illustrations for every line of the lyrics. But I don’t think that song lyrics make the best storybooks because of the repetition of the refrain makes story telling disjointed. I did appreciate the background annotation at the end with the sheet music for the song to give it more of a history, though my son didn’t think that part was as interesting.
