I'm Not Tired Yet! by Marianne Richmond

Great for Read A-loud to the Sleepless

Ralphie Mix at the age of six is up to tricks when he tries to keep from going to sleep. Much of the story is in rhyme, while Ralphie's mother tries a series of different solutions from fish kisses to caterpillar tickles. Finally, after tricking his mother with inferences to problems at school, Ralphie finally falls asleep.  The illustrations are fun, colorful and simple.  A fun read aloud book for parents to share with their children, especially those who have trouble falling asleep.  It would also work well as a read aloud for a young class, followed by acting out the different activities, and brainstorming for more.
