How to Put Your Parents to Bed by Mylisa Larsen-ESSENTIAL

Larsen, Mylisa How to Put Your Parents to Bed.  Illustrated by Babette Cole. HarperCollins Publishers, 2016.  $17.99. PICTURE BOOK. Getting little ones to bed is sometimes difficult.  But have you ever tried putting your PARENTS to bed?  This is an adorable "how to" picture book that children will love.  At the end of the day when children are full of energy, their parents are not. They look sleepy and worn out.  With this step by step hilarious and perfectly illustrated book, little kids will giggle as they read what to do, and what not to do, in getting Mom and Dad off to bed.  The story even suggests taking their parent's cell phones out of their rooms at night. We enjoyed the comedy, the illustrations and the sweet message in this wonderful picture book!  Pre-K.  EL (K-3).  ESSENTIAL.  Reviewer: SL.

We had some parents object to this book at our book fair since it shows the mother in frilly panties and bra.
