Review: How to Put Your Parents to Bed, by Mylisa Larsen, illustrated by Babette Cole

How to Put Your Parents to Bed

No one likes going to bed. And you're not even tired. You want to stay up and have all sorts of fun adventures! But take a look at your parents. They're really tired. They're exhausted. But they just won't go to bed! Help them put down the cell phones, turn off the TV, stop cleaning the dishes, and go to bed! You might be small, but you can handle this task. Follow the instructions in this book and you'll have them snoring in no time.

Those darn parents take a lot of training, don't they? Children will get a giggle out of the idea that they have to be in charge of their parents, while parents may recognize themselves in places (just ONE more e-mail...). Playful parents and kids might have fun trying out this role reversal, with parents trying out their kids' usual stalling tactics. Either way, it's a fun read-aloud, and the illustrations by Cole (also known for the Princess Smartypants books) are a perfect match.
