      Vaguely reminiscent if “If You Give A Mouse A Cookie”Nice illustrations, and cute story line. Would definitely buy for my child! Special Thanks: Special thanks to the publisher and author for providing me with an advanced reader copy of this book through NetGalley. My review is fair and honest, and in no way is a reflection of the fact that I received this book at not cost to myself. My review is based on immediate feelings after completing this book, and is not meant to be in comparison to [...]

      This is a cute story of a not too sleepy little mouse! Mama Mouse gives her Little Mouse lots of good suggestions for falling asleep such as counting stars, hugging your loved ones, reading and more. I loved the illustrations. They were large, busy yet the colors used were soft and conducive to the idea of a bedtime story. My one complaint is that the size of the print is quite small. If I was reading this in dim light while trying to put a little one to sleep, I would have trouble with this. Ov [...]

      I am reviewing this book for Jackie Azua Kramer & Lisa Brandenburg, ClavisPublishing, and NetGalley who gave me a copy of their book for an honest review. When Litle Mouse can't get to sleep, Mamma Mouse gives him several ideas of what to do to nod off such as reading a book from cover to cover, imagining eating different favoured pancakes and so on but nothing works until he imagines hugging his amily again and again.Lovely words and lovely pictures.Maybe the ideas will help some little on [...]

      This book was a very cute little story. It reminds me of the tales and gestures that I do for my own little mice here at home. My youngest son really liked this book when I read it to him and we purchased a copy of our own.

      Poor little mouse is having trouble getting to sleep. He can't calm himself down and drift off so he goes and asks Mama Mouse what he should do. In fact he seeks Mama Mouse out many times to see if she can give him some tips as to how he can shut himself down, curl up, and be gone to Dreamland. Wise Mama, with much patience and love, instructs her little guy to: read a whole book from cover to cover and then wait for the yawning, to imagine a mountain of pancakes and goodies in the morning and w [...]

      Really adorable illustrations, but the text was a little lackluster. It had good rhythm and readability, and it's cute how the toddler mouse keeps coming downstairs saying he can't sleep (ok, less cute if you have your own toddler human that does this, but still, relatable at least). I liked the rhythm of "not one or two or three" but the suggestions of how to fall asleep were just kind of weird. Just weird enough to knock off one star. Still a super good book for bedtime, and long enough to set [...]

      When Little Mouse is having trouble falling asleep, Mama Mouse offers lots of idea to help him. It takes quite a few suggestions, but he finally has success. The story is a delight to read and perfect for sharing with your young readers at bedtime. It may be particularly useful for those children having difficulty falling asleep or struggling with bad dreams. It will definitely have them thinking of positive things before they drift off. The illustrations are adorable and full of action. They de [...]

      This book is a story about little mouse who cannot sleep, and the things that momma mouse recommends he do in order to sleep. The illustrations are beautiful and really complement the story, and there is a lot going on in each page which gives you something new to seek out each time. The text was rather small and given the layout I think it could have been a little larger - always easier if the text is larger! However, I guess this has been done so it does not detract from the images. All in all [...]

      #NetGalley Mama Mouse tucks Little Mouse in bed but soon she hears a noise. When she checks on Little Mouse he is jumping on the bed because he can’t sleep. She suggests that he might want to read a book from cover to cover. When he tries that and it doesn't work she suggests something else. This continues throughout the book until her last suggestion, but will it work or make things worse?Cons:  It’s hard to put my finger on the problem with this story, but it just didn't click with me.Pro [...]

      A little mouse can’t fall asleep, even with all the advice mom gives. He’s got plenty of make-believe characters to help—or hinder—his attempt, though the words rarely match the visuals.Basically a paean to the power of imagination. Nothing particularly special about the artwork, but nothing wrong with it either; it does the job.3.5 pushed up to 4/5

      When it is time to go to sleep, sometimes you are not sleepy. Start by reading your book. Not one page, no two pages, but the entire thing. If that doesn’t work, count the stars, think of breakfast, etc. A fine book, needs a brighter cover. The cover is so drab and grey, but the story is fun a colorful.

      This is the perfect bedtime story for little ones who refuse to go to sleep! It would also be fun for Pajama Storytimes.
