The Little Moose Who Couldn’t Go to Sleep

We rated this book:


Maynard Moose tells his cousin a story about a moose who can’t sleep. Little Moose’s brain can’t go to sleep. She thinks about bananas, fruits, vegetables, animals. At school, she has to count to three over and over again. Her daddy reads a book. It says she has to eat legumes, go to bed early, and think about nothing. It doesn’t work. Her mommy tells her to count sheep, which is a total failure. Then, the second sheep helps her. They fly off to Mother Moose’s kitchen in space. It looks like a fun place. They take tea. (If it were my choice, I’d take the bunny slippers.) The tea works! Little Moose sleeps. It’s easy to understand the words that are not moose words. I don’t think this book would help a kid fall asleep. The illustrator did a good job. If I wrote this book, I’d make it more exciting. This book comes with a CD. It looks interesting, but when I play it, I hear nothing! It’s blank! (I think moose speech is nothing, since they don’t really talk.) The glossary of moose words was fun. I’ve got to admit “Shklork!” is funny. I can read this myself, but I don’t want to.
