“Bedtime for Mommy is a cute story about a little girl putting her parents to bed as they wiggle around and beg for 'just five more minutes!' This fun story is enhanced by the colorful pictures.”
— Lauren Peugh, Mrs. Nelson's Toy & Book Shop, La Verne, CA
When it's Mommy's bedtime, she begs her little girl --
Five more minutes?
Ok, but then brush your teeth!
But then Mommy wants another glass of water…another story…luckily this little girl is very patient!
A hilarious reversal of the classic bedtime routine in which a little girl puts Mommy (and then Daddy) to bed.
