My only hang up on this one is that "bed" is the sign for the physical object (which would be good to use when saying "go make your bed") but when you're trying to prepare them to go to sleep/"go to bed", "sleep" (closing hand in front of face) would probably work better for you.
But overall I love this book set up with real life pictures of both a child and adult doing the signs, and plan to look for more of the Signing Smart series!

I love these Signing Smart books. There are only a few signs taught, so it's not overwhelming. The graphics and illustrations are cute and easy to follow.

Wonderful, ASL certified board book with textures for baby to touch, signs you'll use together and strageties for grown-ups.

I read through this cool book a couple times and hope I can retain the signs. I still remember several from the other signing book I saw the other day. Fun times!
