Goodnight, Little Bot

I am always looking for fun bedtime stories to switch up our nightly routine.  So, when I hear about the release of Karen Kaufman Orloff's new book, "Goodnight Little Bot," I couldn't wait to get my hands on a couple and surprise the girls at bedtime.  

The pages of this children's book are filled with bright and colorful illustrations that make the story come to life.  And, as you read this story to your child, you can't help but laugh as you find Little Bot does the same things as your kids, when it comes to bedtime, and not wanting to go to bed.  I don't know about you, but I dread bedtime with my girls.  Don't get me wrong, I love the snuggling up and reading to them after bath time.  But, once the last book is read, they start with their demands for the night..."I need water," "My pajamas are too hot, can I change?,"  "Why do I have to go to bed...I am not tired?"  I could go on and on with their excuses, but I am guessing many of you deal with the same scenarios are bed time.

If only kids could lay their heads on their pillows and fall fast asleep.  I could have some extra me time to enjoy...without feeling exhausted after trying to put them to bed for over an hour.  I can't tell you how many times my husband and I have fallen asleep on the girls' beds, only to wake and find them still up walking around, playing or reading a book.

The girls really enjoyed this book, and saw themselves in Little Bot with all their excuses that he was using when his mom was trying to get him to sleep.  They both laughed as I said, "See, this is what you do."  In the end Little Bot eventually falls asleep, as did my girls a half hour later. :-)

If you are looking for a cute bedtime story to share with your child, you should really check out this cute by Karen Kaufman Orloff.  Once you read this book, you will find it becoming a favorite at bedtime with your kids, too.  My girls keep asking for this book, and I haven't grown tired of reading it to them.
