Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sarah Maury Swan
Ted does not want to go to bed—there are too many things yet to do in his day. But sneaky Dad knows just how to get Ted to bed. First Ted snaps like a crocodile and Dad snaps him into his pjs. Ted quacks like a duck and Dad gives him a bedtime treat. Next Ted hops like a frog and Dad hops him to the bathroom. Ted flaps his bat wings and hangs upside until Dad flips him upright to brush his teeth. Ted waddles like a penguin and Dad waddles right with him to the bedroom where Ted squeaks like a mouse. But Ted turns into a clucking chicken. When Dad whirls him high in the air, Ted hoots like an owl so Dad scoots him into bed. Ted snuggles under the covers and demands Dad guess what he is now. A barking baby seal is Ted's animal this time, but now he is safely tucked in bed. Dad turns out the light, but Ted begs for one more guess. A porcupine is what he is. Finally Ted is in bed and Dad says, "You're not baby Ted; you're a big boy instead. Just look at how you got yourself ready for bed." This is a sweet bedtime story and a nice interaction between parent and child. The illustrations are nice also. Some of the animal sounds are a bit of a stretch but the illustrations make everything clear. Reviewer: Sarah Maury Swan
School Library Journal
PreS—When their evening story is done, a child crawls off and teases his father with, "I'm not baby Ted. I can't go to bed./Try and guess what I am instead." He moves his arms in a snapping motion, and Dad correctly guesses a baby crocodile. "We'll SNAP him up, WRAP him up,/and tuck him into bed." The game continues as Ted has a bedtime snack, goes to the potty, brushes his teeth, and eventually dives under the covers, challenging his father to identify a different animal impersonation each time. The interactive concept is a fun idea, although it goes on too long and some of the later rhymes do not work as well. The drawings are softly rendered in watercolor, gouache, and colored pencil, leaving plenty of white space to accommodate the pictures and large-type text. Swirling ribbons and cute little animals reflect the playful mood of this good-natured story. Though not a first purchase, this book could be a pleasant addition for bedtime story collections.—Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT
Kirkus Reviews
This story opens with Dad finishing an animal book, which should signal baby Ted to go to bed. But Ted has other plans and begins an elaborate (and quite lengthy) game in which he acts like a creature and asks his dad to "[t]ry and guess what I am instead." Sartell keeps the structured, rhyming text predictable and satisfying for young ears. Each sound or action by Ted is ultimately featured in bright red capital letters. Whether it's shared at bedtime or during storytime, kids will find many places to chime in or participate. As one animal-inspired antic leads to the next, Ted gets closer to bed. Chorao's vibrant watercolor-and-colored pencil illustrations feature swirling ribbon-like frames and squiggles that highlight Ted's various animal interpretations and emphasize his boundless energy as he stalls for bedtime. From crocs to bats to porcupines, smiling Dad marvels at how Ted finally got himself "very quietly, very, very carefully tucked . . . into bed"-right! Should be a guaranteed hit with young preschoolers and their parents. (Picture book. 2-4)
