Children's Book Review: Who Will Tuck Me in Tonight?
Who Will Tuck Me In Tonight?
Written by: Carol Roth
Illustrated by: Valeri Gorbachev
Published by: North-South Books Inc., 2004
It's bedtime, but Woolly the little lamb can't find his mother. Who will tuck him in? "I will, I will," said Mrs. Cow. "Don't you worry. I know how. Everything will be all right. I'll tuck you in real snug and tight." But Mrs. Cow wraps poor Woolly up so tight that he can't move. "STOP!" cries Woolly. "That's not right! Oh, who will tuck me in tonight?" Mrs. Cat, Mrs. Horse, Mrs. Pig, and Mrs. Duck all try, but their efforts prove disastrous, and Woolly grows more and more desperate. Mother Sheep returns at last and tucks her little one in just right—"as only a mother can. From the team who created the best-selling "Little Bunny's Sleepless Night comes another comic, yet sweet and satisfying, bedtime story.
* Poor Woolly lamb just wants to be tucked in to bed, but none of the animals can do it right. I read this book last night to my kids and it had them giggling like crazy. Especially when Mrs. Pig brings a bedtime "snack" and Mrs. Duck tries to sing a lullaby! The pictures definitely help add to the enjoyment of the story. This story shows that only mommy (or daddy) knows just the right way to get a child (or in this case, a lamb!) ready for bed. A great bedtime read.
Family Rating: 2 thumbs up!
