Bedtime for Mommy - Amy Krouse Rosenthal (Picture Book)

 

Released April 2010

The shoe is on the other foot in this amusing story as a little girl must get her mother ready for bedtime. And, of course, mom is not going to go gracefully. From begging for a few more minutes on her computer to asking for an extra story, mom manages to stretch out the whole nighttime ritual.

 With the roles reversed it is the little girl's job to fill the bathtub, check for brushed teeth, layout the next day's clothing, and turn back the covers. And, when mom wants a glass of water or the door left open a little wider, guess who has to handle the request?

Once her mom is safely tucked in the tired child places her hand on her forehead and exclaims, "PHEW!" Then she heads down stairs to start the process all over again with her dad.

This cute story puts a humorous spin on a family activity that most parents can certainly identify with. Whether this will make preparing for bed a little easier remains to be seen but Bedtime for Mommy will certainly elicit a few giggles.
