Children's Literature - Julie Minnich
When it is time for Mark to go to bed, he continuously pleads with his mom for just five more minutes. Since Mark is not very tired, he comes up with increasingly outrageous excuses to postpone bedtime a little bit longer. He promises it will only take five minutes to finish the giraffe scarf he was knitting, but then he would need another five minutes to wrap it around a giraffe's lanky neck. When his mom finally gets him to bed, Mark spends even more time doing important things such as singing a lullaby to his dust bunnies to get them to sleep. Kulka's illustrations emphasize Mark's wacky excuses. Brown and Haley tell a common experience that parents share in negotiating about bedtime. Their use of familiar words and phrases for the children's reading part of this book promotes parents and children reading together. The child part has repeating words and phrases to make reading this story a fun and educational experience. This is a level one book in the "We Both Read" series. Reviewer: Julie Minnich
