A perfect book for reading just before tucking your toddler into bed. A great book for fathers and sons to read together and an absolutely heartwarming book that all kids and parents can relate. We give this book as a gift. It really encourages reading before bedtime. Our other favorite book is "Going to Sleep on the Farm" by Wendy Cheyette Lewison.

A Kid's Review on October 2, 2003
Format: Paperback
This book is about a little critter who pretends to be different things and have different jobs. After that he has a snack and pretends he is a bunny. He said bunnies don't sleep in beds, so he just layed there. Then he decided he could make an exception and he said maybe they can just this once and then he went to bed. The lesson this book teaches is to listen to your parents, and try your best to behave. This is an overall good book and I recommend it for kids 4-8.

My favorite book as a child. I ordered this and another Little Critter book for my 1 year old. I remember having these books as a child and I absolutely loved them. My favorite part of the books was the little mouse hiding in each picture. These books are cute little stories with a lesson sometimes. I know my little one will love these books for years to come, just as I did. They came brand new as described. I will be purchasing more. Thanks!

My 3 year old loves this book. I do too, when she's being difficult about going to sleep, we read this and she follows Lil Critters example. LOL I use whatever works...and this works.

This one is a classic children's book. Like the Christmas Story movie, it is one of those things in life that is very nostalgic. My parents would read this to me when I was a small child. Now I am doing the same to my own children. The theme is timeless even in todays heavy technology era with TV, phones, tablets, and gadgets. Trying to get your little child to go to bed is always a challenge. A night does not go by when my daughter tests every limit of my patience to put her to bed. I read this story to her often before bedtime and she always smiles and laughs. I can now relate to the dad who does his best to get his little trooper to take a bath, pickup, get in pajamas, brush teeth and go to sleep. I am a big fan of Mercer Mayer's stories and this is probably his best. This is a beautifully simple story that is great for young children. I would highly recommend this story to all new parents. It makes a great gift for any occasion. I would rate this a 5 star book.

I love Mercer Mayer illustrations, but the story line here doesn't really flow. Usually these type of stories have some sort of "thing" at the end that makes the kid realize they want to go to bed, but this is literally parents counteracting every excuse the kids comes up with to delay bed and ends with them yelling until he goes to bed. There isn't really any payout or fun twist at the end.

Update:
I was worried that our toddler wouldn't enjoy this story since it's basically parents yelling at their kid to just go to bed. It doesn't seem like a fun story from my perspective. But our toddler routinely requests this book. It's not his favorite, but its definitely solidly in the rotation of books he likes to pick out at night. I guess maybe it's because he identifies with being told repeatedly to just go to bed.

He writes so that kids and parents both get it. His irony is hillarious and the kids totally enjoy that their feelings are portrayed. LOVE it.

My toddler loves this book and I love reading it to him. I love Mercer Mayer books and now my son does as well. We have quite a collection and there has never been one book from this author that my son does not like. We need more books like this!
