Children's Literature
Strictly bibliotherapy, this simple story may be useful to parents who must wean a little one from sleeping in their bed. After a nightly ritual of covering the birdcage, securing bunny safely in his cage, and putting baby in her crib, little Charlie is tenderly kissed and tucked into his own bed. When mommy and daddy fall asleep, a loudly insistent Charlie cries outside their door, "I want to sleep in your bed." Several times throughout the night Charlie is led back to his room, and lovingly and gently reminded that everyone sleeps in his own bed. Charlie says he does not know how to fall asleep, so mommy tells him a story to lull him to sleep. Mommy returns to her own room and the wide awake Charlie knows he cannot go to her again. Charlie finds his fuzzy friend and begins to tell him a story about a little boy who could not fall asleep and before you know it, Charlie is asleep. The child-like crayon artwork in soft shades of blue gives a tranquil dimension to this gentle story. The canine family is portrayed as patient, firm, and very loving. Repetition of this story might be needed to help little ones cope with this hard reality of growing up, as most will not give in as readily as Charlie. 2005, Blue Apple Books, Ages 2 to 5.

School Library Journal
PreS-K-In this dog family, the pets and the baby willingly succumb to sleep in their beds when darkness falls. But young Charlie refuses to be alone and stands outside his parents' bedroom crying, "`I want to sleep in your bed!'" Even though the puppy's mother and father take turns explaining why he needs to stay in his room, he cannot drop off. His mother tells him a story, tucks him in again, and leaves the room. Finally understanding that he needs to remain there, the pup quietly entertains himself by playing with a stuffed animal. While telling the toy a story, he falls asleep. Childlike, mixed-media illustrations depict lamps giving off golden rays of light, sleeping animals softly emitting the "zzzzzz" of slumber, and the shining moon and stars hovering outside every window. A gentle tale about a hard-learned lesson.-Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A sweet nighttime routine is followed by tears when Charlie can't sleep in his own bed-he doesn't know how. The bedtime ritual begins by covering the birdcage: "Good night, sleepy parakeet." The pet bunny is next, then the baby. Each gets tucked into its own bed and kissed good night. Then Mommy and Daddy go to bed, too. But Charlie winds up crying outside their door with a request familiar to all parents: "I want to sleep in your bed." Both of his parents try to get him to sleep, but ultimately Charlie finds sleep on his own-in helping his bedtime friend get to sleep, he is his own Sandman. Kreloff's crayon drawings are childlike-simple block figures, uneven lines, imperfect shading. But they suit the mood and topic perfectly, capturing the facial expressions of the loving parents and the distraught child. The focus is placed on objects that universally mean bedtime-moon and stars, nightlights, beds, pajamas and stuffed toys. A perfect read before falling asleep. (Picture book. 2-5)
