Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS—A young mouse gets ready for bed, but can't fall asleep. On subsequent pages, she begs her mother for, among other things, a drink, another blanket, a doll, and, finally, one more hug. Her exhausted mother obediently answers all these requests, and then falls asleep. Church's cartoons in collage, paint, and ink in muted earth tones on textured papers are appropriately cozy and snug. However, while children will identify with Madison's multiple bedtime requests and difficulties falling asleep, the resolution here is unsatisfying. Parents may find the ending funny and ironic, but children will not. The last page leaves Madison still anxiously wide awake, and the comforting ending necessary in bedtime books for young children is lost in the night.—Rachel G. Payne, Brooklyn Public Library, NY

From Booklist

When Mommy says it’s time for bed, Madison the mouse begins her bedtime routine without protest. Once she is tucked into bed, however, the little mouse decides that she can’t go to sleep without her doll. Mommy returns with the doll and gives her daughter a good-night hug. But still sleep evades Madison, so she asks for a drink and an extra blanket. Mommy brings both and gives Madison another hug. And on it goes, until finally the mouse realizes the one last surefire thing she needs to fall asleep—one more hug from Mommy. Church’s collage, brush, and ink illustrations are straight-up cute, with hearts flowing from Mommy’s hugs and kisses and tree branches and stumps making up the furniture in Madison’s bedroom. Although Church’s take on an age-old nighttime tradition fails to break any new ground, it is filled with genuine tenderness and wisely eschews any of the chicanery or silliness that might rile up young listeners before their own bedtimes. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Kristen McKulski

Great gift for my great-niece Madison.

She enjoyed hearing her name & I like that it gives a visual of her name every time we read it.

I bought this book after hearing it at a library story hour. My daughter's name is Madison, so it was perfect! As a parent, we all know how long the bedtime routine can play out, with the repeated requests for hugs, kisses, water, potty breaks, and this charming tale nails it exactly. Even after our umpteenth reading, my daughter giggles when we get to the end. A must have for any bedtime routine, even if your girl isn't named Madison :-)

I was very excited to receive this book. However, after reading it, I am not satisfied with the content.
It's not catchy nor is it amusing.

This is a beautifully illustrated book that my almost 2 year old absolutely loves. She really likes that the little mouse shares the same name as her and gets all excited when we read about how Madison the mouse does the same things that she does. I am not so sure that I like how Madison calls out for different items after going to bed, but for now it is cute since my little one hasn't reached that age yet. It portrays a loving bond between Madison and her mother which is sweet. Overall it's a cute book.

This is my two and a half year old daughter Madison's favorite book! It's an easy read, and not too long, so she doesn't get bored. She actually has it memorized because she won't go to bed without reading it. Super cute. Totally recommend (especially for a little girl named Madison).

I was searching for a book that included my grand daughters name "Madison." The size of this book is great! She enjoyed hearing her name & I like that it gives a visual of her name every time we read it.
