Perfect For Your Bedtime Procrastinator

Summary:

Tiger cub doesn't want to go to sleep. He keeps trying to talk his Mom out of going to sleep and she finally gives in. He goes wandering around the jungle to see his friends but they are all getting ready for bed or are already asleep. Everywhere he goes, the parents of his friends keep asking why he is awake. The bush baby brings him home finally and he falls right to sleep.

Both children loved the book. My daughter hates to go to sleep so she liked that part and my son loves animals so that was his favorite part. We read this several times. Sometimes they picked it out, sometimes I picked it out.
