My Thoughts

It is bedtime in the Southwest and some of the darling little critters may not want got bed when their parent's tell the it is bedtime.

Do they come up with silly excuses why they do not want to go to bed or do they mind their parentts and go to bed without a fuss?!

The author tells a tale in rhymes that will cause your child to giggle and wiggle!  As they open the book and see the lively illustrations they will be anxious to turn the page to see what the next page holds for them.

This is a fun book about bedtime antics of cute little critters of the Southwest and I highly recommend it for all the little guys and gals ages 2-5 years old.

I rated this book 5 out of 5.

I purchased this book and was in no way compensated for this review.  It is my own opinion.
