“Bedtime for Mommy is a cute story about a little girl putting her parents to bed as they wiggle around and beg for 'just five more minutes!' This fun story is enhanced by the colorful pictures.”
— Lauren Peugh, Mrs. Nelson's Toy & Book Shop, La Verne, CA

Bestselling and beloved author Amy Krouse Rosenthal teams up with bestselling illustrator LeUyen Pham to put a funny and charming spin on bedtime.

When it's Mommy's bedtime, she begs her little girl --

"Five more minutes?"

"Ok, but then brush your teeth!"

But then Mommy wants another glass of water . . . another story . . . luckily this little girl is very patient!

A hilarious reversal of the classic bedtime routine in which a little girl puts Mommy (and then Daddy) to bed.
