Are You Awake? by Sophie Blackall-ADVISABLE

Blackall, Sophie.  Are you Awake? 40 pgs.  Henry Hold and Co, 2011.  $12.99.  Inside cover:  “Edward just can’t fall asleep!  In this charming picture book about the all-familiar bedtime negotiations between parent and child, Edward and his mom stay awake almost long enough to see the sun.  This book is a heartwarming interaction between a mother and her small son in the middle of the night.  We were fascinated with the questions he had for his mother, as well as the patience she exhibited towards her son!  The illustrations are precious.  We enjoyed this book and recommend it to all families with little ones. We especially enjoyed the ending!  However, there aren’t a lot of applications to the classroom. Pre-K.  EL (K-3).  ADVISABLE.  Reviewer:  SL.
