Book Review: Bedtime for Mommy by Amy Krouse Rosenthal
When it's Mommy's bedtime, she begs her little girl, "Five more minutes?" But then Mommy wants another glass of water...another story...luckily this little girl is very patient! A hilarious reversal of the classic bedtime routine in which a little girl puts Mommy (and then Daddy) to bed in "Bedtime for Mommy" by Amy Krouse Rosenthal.
My kids thought this story was so funny that they had trouble calming down to listen to each page. We have all been there as parents when our kids have trouble going to bed when they should. They seem to find every excuse to stay up later and later. We try to keep calm and patient. This story is the same way the Mommy finds every excuse to stay up and not go to bed. But the little girl is in charge and tries as she might to get her Mommy to bed on time. The pictures could use more details but the author did an amazing job on portraying the hardship of getting someone to bed on time. I recommend this story for all parents to read.
