When the clock strikes 7:30, the mother is still working away at her desk. We know someone is diligently monitoring the time for her, as a little ponytailed head pops around the corner and announces "Bedtime!" But, but, Mom isn't ready for bed yet, and she frantically shuffles papers and taps on her keyboard. Her request of an additional "five more minutes?" is reluctantly granted, but then it really will be bedtime, no excuses.
Once the little girl pries her mom away from her computer and marches her up the stairs, there is the usual bedtime routine to navigate. She has to oversee that teeth are properly brushed, a bath is drawn and fresh pajamas are produced. After that, she must help choose an outfit for the next morning. The first three selections are met with head shakes and looks of disdain until the fourth one meets with her charge's approval. Then it's onto to book reading in bed, one last drink of water and a discussion over how far the door needs to be cracked open for proper light.
Finally, she gets her mom all tucked in for the night. As she heads down the stairs, she stops and says "Phew!" Yup, that pretty much captures exactly how I feel as a mom at the end of each night! Reading this will make you chuckle with recognition and have your kids wanting to try putting you to bed! Thanks to Amy Krouse Rosenthal for another great book to add to our collection.
I really enjoyed and laughed at the illustrations showing the Mommy's bath toys (bath salts, oils, and a razor) and her bedtime story (Anna Karenina).
I can't wait to get home and give them this book for tonight's festivities.
A fun book to read with your kids. the illustrations are awesome. More pictures, less words ... but the story says it all. Most parents and kids and relate to the bedtime routines at home.
We love reading this book.
Bedtime for Mommy finds the young daughter in charge of putting a rambunctious Mommy to bed. But Mommy needs water, a story, and the lights on. My 4yo thinks this book is absolutely hilarious, though she hasn't yet worked up the nerve to try to put her own Mommy to bed this way. I appreciate Pham's charming little illustrations and Rosenthal's absolutely perfect prose. A new family favorite for sure!

I thought the book was good, but the kids not so much. Don't know why.Published 7 months ago by Sachin
Cute story but not quite what I expected. I thought it would be more of a look at how mommy WANTS to go to bed (while typically kids don't) instead of a "turn the tables"... Read morePublished 8 months ago by Amazon Customer
Grownup-kid role reversal books tend to be popular with kids, but this one was fun for me too because Pham's drawings of the characters get their body language so wonderfully. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Skye Kilaen
