This book can help the students to remember that they have to get their rest at night to be able to function at school. Listen to mom and dad and go to bed when told to. ( )

I used this book to work on vocabulary strategies. I think students would like this book because they will enjoy the father and sons interaction. They will also enjoy the little critters imagination. ( )

Somehow I never minded reading these over and over again to my kids. I guess because LC is just a little naughty/ impulsive, but also lovable, w/good intentions. Something like Ramona Quimby, Clementine, and my kids. There are lots of books with this same theme, but if you and your kids already love LC, stick with him. Kids like security and routine, at bedtime and in their reading choices. ( )

"Just go to bed" by Mercer May is about a Little Critter need to go to bed. He tries everything to not go to bed and start to imagine things. He finally gets exhausted and falls asleep. ( )

This adorable book is a must read just about every night for my 2 1/2 year old son who never wants to go to bed. Little Critter's imagination runs wild as he comes up with every excuse in the book as to why he can't go to bed. We read this one so often that my son now quotes it. Ironically reading Just Go to Bed actually helps him calm down and "go to bed". ( )
