Bedtime! (but I wanted to...)

Life is full of interruptions. Guess what? So are some books.

Check out these new picturebook titles released just this week:

Read to Tiger by S.J. Fore and illustrated by R.W. Alley

How can this boy ever finish his book with a tiger who practices his karate, dresses up like a bear, and rides a train around the couch? It's one interruption after another.

The first time I read this book, I could not contain my laughter! The antics of this playful tiger and this boy's determination to finish his book is too good to pass up.

Interrupting Chicken by David Ezra Stein

Little Red Chicken knows his bedtime stories so well that he keeps interrupting his father. It's not to be rude or anything, but he believes he's saving the characters -- like Little Red Riding Hood and Chicken Little -- from dangers that lay ahead. But, will this chicken ever go to sleep? After all, he "can't go to sleep without a story!"
