“In sharing motherhood with friends inevitably we end up laughing and/or crying about the nights spent trying to get our kids to bed," says author Jackie Azua Kramer. "Just when you want to snuggle in with a good book and a cup of tea your little darling has a hundred and one excuses for why they can’t sleep. If this is true for you, you’ll love reading IF YOU WANT TO FALL ASLEEP with your pesky night watch-man. It’s a sweet bedtime battle between Little Mouse’s endless reasons for why he can’t sleep and his mother’s loving and imaginative suggestions. A night filled with daring pirates, mountains of pancakes, floating among the stars…and wait for yawning. And stretching. And sleepy thoughts. And drowsy eyes. I think you’ll love this story as you laugh seeing yourselves in Mama Mouse and Little Mouse. I treasure the bedtimes I’ve had snuggled together reading books with my children and this book will be sure to lead to sweet dreams.”
