One of life’s great ironies is that children fight sleep while their parents ache for it. Karla Clark’s playful picture book touches on this utterly relatable theme with humor and heart, providing a story mothers and children will delight in reading together at bedtime.

Mommy’s too tired to be Mommy tonight.
Can you be Mommy and hold me tight?

Read me a story and pat my tummy?
Wipe my nose when it gets runny?

Check for monsters under the bed?
Sing me a song and rub my head?
She worked all day at the computer store.
Came home to a big mess on the floor!
Helped with homework—even MATH!
Fed the dog and gave him a bath.

Rhyming text makes for a great read-aloud as reader and listener wind down for bedtime. Parents and kids will both enjoy this wonderful story.
