I‘m Not Tired Yet by Marianne Richmond
This is a delightful book about a 6-year old boy who claims he’s not tired yet. He very creatively comes up with many ways to put off going to bed. He is distracted by seeing a bug, a monster (and many other things as well). His mother counters each stalling tactic with a patient and loving response such as
“Could it be that what you need is a fishy goldfish kiss?”
“Could it be what you need is one big gorilla hug?”
as well as
“Could it be that what you need is a cozy polar bear cuddle?”
Young readers will enjoy the full color illustrations and rhyming words. This is a fun read for both adults and children.
Recommended for ages 4 and up.
