9780060537210: My Parents Think I'm Sleeping (I Can Read Book 3)

So my parents think I'm sleeping, but that's simply their mistake, I have got them fooled completely, I am really wide-awake.

From watching shadows dancing on a wall, to reading books by flashlight under the covers, to sneaking downstairs to grab that last piece of chocolate cake, master poet Jack Prelutsky shows readers that a child's life begins at bedtime!

Review:

The childhood ritual of being put to bed has been a source of inspiration for children (and frustration for grownups) throughout the ages. Prolific children's poet Jack Prelutsky has taken this undeniable truism and run with it in My Parents Think I'm Sleeping, an eye-opening, poetic romp through the multitude of adventures that can take place after the lights have been turned out. From pleasant nighttime thoughts ("I have been in bed for hours, / but I'm sure I'm wide-awake, / for my head is filled with visions / of a forest by a lake.") to philosophical ponderings ("What happens to the colors / when night replaces day? / What turns the wrens to ravens, / the trees to shades of gray?"), children everywhere will relate to these soothing, sleepy poems. Illustrated by Yossi Abolafia with the foggy blues and grays of the gloaming, kids will love snuggling up with this book--in fact, it just might make tuck-in time a dream! (Ages 4 to 8)

From the Back Cover:

From reading under the covers to watching shadows dance on the wall, these fourteen vigorous verses show that a child's life begins at bedtime!
