{The Little Moose Who Couldn’t go to Sleep: Willy Claflin}

{Synopsis} – From the award winning creative team who brought you The Uglified Ducky, winner of the 2011 Texas Bluebonnet Award, Rapunzel and the Seven Dwarfs, and The Bully Goat Grim comes the fourth fractured fairy tale from Maynard Moose. The Little Moose Who Couldn’t go to Sleep practically named itself. Part cautionary tale, part travelogue, Little Moose will take you places no moose has been before, well except Mother Moose. Nevermind that. If you want to do well in school, impress your parents and show up your siblings, a good night’s sleep is essential. So grab a cup of tea, hang on for a ride into space and learn the secret of, uh, of MAHHH Dingy-Ding!

{My thoughts} – This book reminds me much of Mother Goose type tales. It is nicely written and the illustrations go well with the story. I do find this to be a rather long bedtime type story. I haven’t read it to my children but I did read it while sitting here at my desk. The odd words in place of other words made me think of Dr. Suess and his method of writing. I suppose what this book would be in a sense is Mother Goose meets Dr. Suess. I know strange. It is a very nice book and I am sure many children may love and enjoy hearing this tale over and over again.

I look forward to being able to read the rest of this collection because it is the type of children’s book that is unique and can be highly memorable for anyone child’s childhood. This book is the tale about a young moose that is having a difficult time sleeping at night and therefore has problems focusing in school. I Can see how this could be a good book to use as a lesson learner. My children always complain about needing to go to bed at a specific time and because of that it is sometimes hard for them to fall asleep.

When they do finally fall asleep they have issues waking up in the morning and functioning like a child should. They are just sleepy all day and want to fall asleep in school and because of that things are difficult and rough and things aren’t always good. However, when they do get plenty of sleep they wake up in happy moods and have great days at school. This book could be a means to show that that they need to sleep in order to do well the next day. I enjoyed this book because as I was reading through it, it made me think of the difficult times we have some nights getting our children to go to bed. I plan to read this book to my children in the very near future.

I also look forward to reading more tales in this collection.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
