Our night time routine includes a book before bed. When my son was younger, he would typically drift off before the end of the second book. Not anymore!! If anything he usually looks for another 6 books, or makes up some excuse to stay up later! How at his age does he even know that kids are supposed to fight bedtime??!?
This book is one of our night time favorites, and helps keep me laughing about the situation;)
"Don't Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late," is about a pigeon that fights bedtime. It is hilarious, and reminds me that this fight occurs in all families (even animals). The illustrations are funny too. Seriously try to read this book, and stay mad!!
I am sure that many of you have probably seen this fabulous series of "pigeon books", by Mo Willems...but if you haven't read them yet, or not this particular one please grab it.
You will be so glad that you did. They are all so funny, but this one belongs on every family's nightstand:)
