Editorial Reviews


"Especially notable." - Booklist, Spring Preview

"Lulling language, key bedtime trigger words, and gentle repetition are sure to help tiny eyes close. Children will enjoy witnessing Little Mouse's mischief and that of his many toys….A common nighttime predicament with a few not-so-common solutions.” - Kirkus Reviews

“With quiet sounding language and a soothing rhythm, Azua Kramer’s writing does an impressive job of lulling little ones to sleep. Parents will appreciate that there’s just the right amount of words….And, when in the end, Mama Mouse gives hugs to her child, it’s a wonderful way to wrap up story time and kiss your own child good-night. I have no doubt that they’ll be relaxed, ready to drift off to dreamland filled with loving thoughts and a smiling face.” - Good Reads with Ronna 

"Rest assured, If You Want to Fall Asleep is a dreamy bedtime story that kids will want to hear again and again. It would be a star on any child’s bookshelf.”  - Kathryn Carroll, Celebrate Picture Books

"Why I like this book: Most kids have trouble winding down…I love this rollicking adventure that is sure to help them do that. And if it doesn’t, it is sure to entertain them while they are up! The illustrations are bold, vibrant, and filled with humor. We always need fresh new bedtime stories." - Vivian Kirkland, Picture Books Help Kids Soar

"Why we love it...It's a classic, clever, imaginative, cumulative tale, perfect for reading sweet little mice to sleep. What's the kid-appeal? Kids will relate to Little Mouse's dilemma, enjoy all of Mama's imaginative solutions, and pore over the oh-so-darling illustrations in this book. What's the grownup appeal? Every parent has heard the words, "but I'm not sleepy," from their kiddos at bedtime. This lyrical bedtime book is a classic way to calm down, giggle, snuggle, and invite kids to let their imaginations carry them off to sweet slumber." - Little Crooked Cottage

"The perfect bedtime story for little ones who refuse to go to sleep! It would also be fun for Pajama Storytimes." - Emily Harris, Siouxland Libraries

"Delightful lyrical story ... perfect to share with your little mouse at bedtime." - Marilyn Panton, Storywraps

"A good bedtime story for pre-schoolers." - Carla Johnson-Hicks, elementary school educator
