Mama, I Can't Sleep by Brigitte Raab, Manuela Olten

Sometimes it feels almost impossible to fall asleep. So, when a little girl insists that she simply cannot sleep, her mother tells her how all of the animals in the world go to sleep. But each animal sleeps differently, as the little girl finds out: leopards sleep in trees; storks sleep standing on only one leg; fish sleep with their eyes open; bats hang upside down while they sleep; ducks sleep in large groups; and so forth. But what is the best way for children to sleep? Perhaps if the little girl tries out all the ways animals sleep, she’ll find the perfect way for her—which may just be her own bed, after all!

Mama, I Can’t Sleep is a delightful goodnight book from the picture-book dream team of Brigitte Raab and Manuela Olten. Original, amusing, and brimming with fun animal knowledge, this is sure to help any reluctant child—who would much rather sleep with Mom and Dad—to discover that, just like the animals, children have their own special way of falling fast asleep. This book is the perfect gift for new parents or anyone living with young children.

Well, your grammar and spelling honestly need some working on. PLEASE capitolize! Especially your 'i's when you're addressing yourself. Also, longer = better. Two pages is VERY short for a story. Try putting detail in! Detail takes up more space, making a story longer. But more importantly, detail makes a story more interesting. I didn't quite follow through with your story, all in all. But everyone needs to practice LOTS to become a great writer.
