Description (from Goodreads):
Mocha says it’s bedtime, but Petri wants nothing to do with it! Reading books, singing lullabies and juggling plates are only a few of the things Mocha does in an attempt to tire his son out. Although Petri is entertained, he still refuses to sleep. He just wants to dilly dally! Worn out by his son’s shenanigans and silly antics, will Mocha ever get Petri to bed before losing his marbles?
I received a free ecopy for an honest review.
Gerbs in the House: The Dilly Dally Bedtime is a cute book for young children. This story has rhyming verses and great illustrations that include photos of gerbils. It’s orginal and very creative!
This is a great book for young children and would definitely be a fun book for parents to read aloud.
