Why is it that when bedtime arrives, THAT’S the time children’s curiosity seems to peak?
It’s the nightmare of babysitters and parents everywhere! Being asked countless off-the-wall questions as you put a child to bed. And every answer only causes more silly questions and more delays.
This is the dilemma Herman Jiggle’s mom confronts as she tries to coax her son to wash his face, brush his teeth and go to bed. But Hermie is a curious kid who wants answers to the great mysteries of life, such as why do we have bubble gum? and how do cows see in the dark?, before he’ll even think about falling asleep.
In this tale, Mom’s patience is on point as she masterfully guides Herman through his bedtime routine, embracing his curiosity while reminding him of what comes next.
This sweet story is something to which every parent and caretaker can relate. Told in Julia Cook’s classic style, young children will enjoy learning along with Herman, and their parents and caretakers will be laughing along the way.
Written for children ages 3-9, Herman Jiggle, Go to Sleep! is part of the Socially Skilled Kids book series. Included at the end of the book are tips for parents.
