I was expecting something a bit more creative but the concept is clever

This book is a riot. My husband is reading it to my 3.5-yr-old and we're all howling with laughter, kiddo included. I'd recommend it for 3 and up for the kid to interact (there are jokes in it, including a knock-knock) and get the humour. Along the lines of Go The F to Sleep, but this is the clean, good-natured version :)

I know this is my adult summer reading list but I had to add this book. I tmade me giggle as I read it to my toddler. It is cleverly written and clearly shows a poor father's frustration with a child who is fighting sleep.

Cute, fun read for preschoolers through first graders. The kids get how much effort it takes for a parent to get the kiddo down - love how they pass out together at the end - very reminiscent of bedtime scenes at home.

A good lesson in the power of, and need of description. It is very amusing that each tale ends with the suggestion of sleep!

Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water. Jack! What are you doing out of bed in the middle of the night?
