How to Put Your Parents to Bed


For fans of the How to Babysit… series by Jean Reagan, a perfect guide for children with parents who just won’t sleep!

No one likes going to bed. Especially when you're not even tired. You want to stay up and have all sorts of fun adventures! But take a look at your parents. They're really tired. They're exhausted. But they just won't go to bed! Help them put down the cell phones, turn off the TV, stop cleaning the dishes, and go to bed! You might be small, but you can handle this task. Follow the instructions in this book and you'll have them snoring in no time.

Mylisa Larsen teams up with Babette Cole, author-illustrator of Princess Smartypants and Dr. Dog, to present a bedtime story like you've never seen before! Larsen's tongue-in-cheek bedtime story about a role reversal between parents and a child pairs perfectly with Cole's hilarious and bright watercolor illustrations.
