Little Tiger does not want to go to bed. One night Mummy Tiger says 'All right, you can stay up all night'. he scampers off into the jungle looking for his friends, who are all in the various stages of preparation for bed. Eventually he is lost and is brought home to the safety of Mummy by a Bush Baby. A delightful story, with beautiful illustrations that will appeal to pre-schoolers. There may be quite a few who identify!

Every night it is the same routine in our house. When I announce `Bed Time!', my announcement is met with an instantaneous `NO' from my daughter. Even if it is late and she is tired from the day's activities, she always has immense inertia to get in to bed, just like the little tiger in this book.

Having read `Wait For Me Little Tiger', my children are already familiar with the Little Tiger series. This plus the title really got my attention and I decided to borrow this book from the library.

The story is about a little tiger (tiger cub) who refuses to go to bed. One night mama tiger, out of sheer frustration, allows the little tiger to `stay up ALL night'. The overjoyed with the prospect of playing with his friends all night, the little tiger runs away in to the forest to find his friends. His first visit is to the lion cub. The little tiger is disappointed to find the lion cub nestled between his dad's paws getting ready for bed. Daddy lion asks the little tiger `Why are you still up?'. The little tiger replies, `I don't want to go to bed' and runs to his next friend. He visits the little hippo, the little elephant and the little monkey only to find that all his friends are getting ready to go to bed. The little tiger realizes that all of his friends go to bed when it gets dark and it is no fun to be by himself that late in the night. To add to this, the little tiger thinks he has gotten himself lost in the forest. At this moment a bush baby comes to his rescue and escorts the little tiger home.....just in time for bed. The tired little tiger falls asleep safely tucked between mommy's paws.

Both my children like the little tiger series. The elder one, because she empathizes with the little tiger.

Most kids get a little restless and don't want to go to bed at night. During this time little ones think that there are lots of cool and interesting things that happen after they go to bed. But is that true?

Little tiger does not want to go to bed. Every night Mommy Tiger has to talk him down for the night. One night she says, “All right! You can stay up all night long.” Of course Little Tiger goes out to see what happens after bedtime. What he learns is that lots of animals are going to bed and want him to go away.

Little Tiger went to visit Little Elephant. “Why are you still up?” Trumpeted Mommy Elephant. “I don't want to go to bed!” said Little Tiger, and he bounced off before Mommy Elephant could put him to bed, too!

Not all animals are going to bed, some are just getting out and about. They don't want Little Tiger around either just in case Mommy Tiger tries to put them to bed. What will Little Tiger discover as the dark night settles in? You will have to read the story to see.

Parents and teachers will have fun sharing this story with little ones who find it hard to go to bed. The bright colorful pictures are a great tool for sharing animal types, colors, shapes and big bold words that make learning to read fun and easy. This story is also interactive as toddlers can repeat Little Tigers famous line.

I love this book and all of those in the Little Tiger series. Julie Sykes is an amazing author and person. She responded to me with words of encouragement and kindness when I reached out to her in the beginning stages of my writing career. All of her books have been enjoyed by my own three children as well as the children in my child care center. The characters are adorable and the story line is flawless. You feel as if you are actually going on the journey with Little Tiger. I bought her books at the book store but definitely felt they deserved an online review. I can't wait to see what she comes out with next!

As an author Welcome to "Poop Camp" The Truth, The Whole Truth, and Nothing but the Truth about Potty Training myself, I highly recommend quality readings such as this by Julie Sykes!

I Don’t Want to go to Bed! is adorable. A perfect blend of a sweet story and colorful illustrations, every little one who tries to avoid bedtime–and even those who haven’t–will enjoy following along Little Tiger’s journey through the jungle as he dashes from one animal family to another trying to be sure he can stay up all night.

Little Tiger is the main character featured in other books by Sykes. I’m definitely interested in reading the others.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher. This review contains my honest opinions, which I have not been compensated for in any way.
