A step-by-step guide to help youngsters put their reluctant, too-busy, tired, distracted parents to bed. The story and illustrations made me laugh out loud. What a cute switch-a-roo take on bedtime! What to do when your parents are looking a bit….exhausted? Put them to bed! But putting parents to bed is no easy task when there’s laundry to do and emails to check. From brushing their teeth to getting them into bed, oh, and they want their bedtime stories, it’s quite a challenge. Readers follow a determined little girl through her evening routine in trying to get her parents to bed, with accompanying hilarious illustrations (love the dog and cat).
