It Is Not Time For Sleeping (A Bedtime Story) by Lisa Graff and Lauren Castillo
As the day comes to an end, bedtime draws near. But the little boy in this book is quite sure it is NOT time for sleeping. As each piece of his evening routine is completed—helping with the dishes, playing with the dog, getting into pajamas, brushing teeth with Dad, being tucked in by Mom, and listening to a story—he becomes a little more certain: it is definitely not time for sleeping. The question is, when WILL it be time for sleeping? A rhythmic, cumulative text and lush twilit scenes come together to create a perfect bedtime book that will be treasured for generations to come.
Lisa Graff is the author of several middle-grade novels, including A Tangle of Knots, which was long-listed for the National Book Award. It Is Not Time for Sleeping, illustrated by Caldecott-Honor recipient Lauren Castillo, is her first picture book. She lives with her family in Pennsylvania.
