Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You

The Book

This delightful rhyming book contains advice written from one child to another regarding how to get Mommy into bed and fast asleep at night.  

"Getting Mommy to take a rest
Is hard to do--it's true!
She seems to want to stay up late,
No matter what you do!"

The book is both heartwarming and humorous.  The role-reversal  bedtime story advises kids to start early in the day. It seems that Mommy never stops being busy and is always looking towards the next thing that has to be done sooooooo.... this little guy takes it upon himself to be in charge and see that his overbusy Mommy gets the proper rest and sleep that she so deserves.  

"How to Get a Mommy to Sleep" from bestselling author Amy Parker is perfect for
  • families with young children who always have energy left over at night
  • preschoolers and elementary-school children who regularly ask for a funny bedtime book
  • reading aloud for a silly and sweet tuck-in story time
  • telling any mother “I love you, mom”
  • helping kids think about all the ways parents care for them

The kid-friendly illustrations are so well done making the text seem animated and come alive.  The book celebrates the themes of: caring for one another, spending quality time together, expressing faith in God through reading the Bible and saying prayers at night.  A " Bedtime Prayer for Mommy and Me" is included at the back of the book.  This book would be a perfect Mother's Day, Christmas, Birthday or ANYTIME gift for the special Mommy in a child's life. It's also a whimsical way to commemorate a child's birthday, National Daughter's Day, or National Son's Day.  I highly recommend it.
