It’s Mortimer’s bedtime, but he would much rather sing his rowdy song. Mom, Dad and even the police can’t get him to quiet down, until they become so distracted by each otherthat Mortimer drifts off to sleep.
Mortimer is like any child, he doesn’t like to go to bed! What does a child do when they don’t want to go to bed? They do ANYTHING but go to bed!
I feel like I really relate to this story, even as an adult. You know, when you are laying in bed just staring at the ceiling, thinking about all the things that you didn’t get finished today? Maybe from now on I will just sing Mortimer’s song.
I love this book because it is fun, you can sing and dance along with it. I love this book because EVERY child relates to not wanting to go to bed and EVERY parent knows how it feels to constantly be trying to convince your child to do something, whether it be going to sleep, or being quiet, likely both.

Have something to say?
