"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". ( )

The Little Critter series are great for expression because there are many describing words and illustrations that help with overall understanding. I also love these books because they are extremely relatable to the students.

This book captures what its like for kids when it is bed time. No child ever wants to go to bed no matter how tired they are. This book also captures a child's imagination and how the possibilities are endless when you have imagination. It is a cute story, and a great read. ( )

This book is an excellent book to read to a child who has trouble going to bed or procrastinates going to sleep. Mercer mayers known critter is doing everything possible to keep from going to sleep. He pretends to be all types of things such as a cowboy, space cadet, and a sea monster to keep his dads attention of off making him going to sleep. After attempting to fight sleep he eventually gives up and goes to sleep! This is a cute story and easy for a child to relate to. I highly recommend this for a young reader, or even a child who can't read yet! ( )
