Booklist - 12/15/2015 “I know. You are not tired,” the family cat says to the family child before imploring the kid to take a close look at her exhausted parents: “Parents are not good at going to bed. ‘I have to put in a load of laundry,’ they say.” The daughter is then given a step-by-step guide on how best to put her parents to bed, complete with everything from brushing teeth to minimizing distractions (“Phones. Magazines. TV. The cat”), reading bedtime stories, and taking away their cell phones once they’re tucked in. This is a cute, fun bedtime story with the roles reversed. Cole’s exuberant pen-and-watercolor illustrations encapsulate the chaos of the household at bedtime—dishes are overflowing from the sink, laundry is strewn around the apartment, and the walls have been haphazardly colored. There are plenty of picture books on a similar theme, but this is still an enjoyable—and hopefully convincing—bedtime read-aloud, packed with enough energy that it’s sure to tucker out even the rowdiest of kids. (And parents.) - Copyright 2015 Booklist.
