Cute book for kids

Kid hears mom still up after he goes to bed and sees she has a list of chores. He decides to help set she can go to bed. Cute story with adorable pictures. In the back is another book and it is just as cute.

I laughed so hard when my son and i read this. I can so relate tot he tired mom and the little boy who wants to help. My son tries to help me all the time and even though most times its more of a mess for me to clean, it is still the sweetest thing.

Such a sweet story

I am so excited about this book, especially illustrations. It is adorable! And a bonus story, in the end, is also charming.

Charming encouragement for children

Moms work hard and often can use help. These children are clever and helpful without being too schmaltzy. Wonderful read for both adults and children.

Have you ever longed for help with the long list of chores you plan to tackle after the children are in bed? Then this is for you. The young boy in this story realises with horror everything his mom has to do before she can go to bed. He worries she will turn into a zombie (there is only a funny non-scary picture of this, the word is not used) if she has to do all that work alone. So he sneaks out of bed to do the chores for her. There is a delightful end to this tale and the pictures are comic ...more

A novel way on how to show children how much mum's do in a day! A delightful read, informative and lovely images. I imagine it will hold children spellbound from beginning to end.

I would have to say though I found the type use very small and couldn't adjust it on my kindle. But despite this a great little read for little people.

A boy is alarmed by his mother's to-do list. She may never go to sleep. He steps in to help her finish her housework in the funniest manner. This is a super adorable picture book.

My children love these little books. They thoroughly enjoy each and every story, as if they are all unique and individual without any cause for similarity among them. Even though sometimes, they might seem tedious and repetitive to me as a parent, I do enjoy being able to read short-stories to my children that are clean and respective.

Cute story about a young boy who realizes how much his mom has to do before she can go to sleep too. He sets out to take care of her To Do list and tucks her in for the night.
Clever way to introduce jobs for toddlers and preschoolers.

Too much cuteness

These two books are adorable in the way they present life’s struggles. A son tries to help his mother get to bed early, and a dog who makes the best of every home finds the best home of all. Two books most kids will like.

It cute for mothers

I love this book I read it to my kids. Show how much mom do while they asleep and tell it helpful if they help out too before bed. So mom can have some sleep too!

Cute book for children ages 1-6

This book has few words on each page leaving room for discussions with your little ones. It's an inspirational book with nice illustrations. I know my little ones will enjoy it.

This was an excellent book for gaining perspective on how many parents are up long after the children believe the day has ended. I loved this book because it seemed a pleasant way to validate the hard work of parents while also encouraging them to prioritize rest! Simple, short, and very cute!

I love how this book promotes sensitivity to all that moms do, and the willingness of the little boy to make it better for her.
