When it is bed time I have a very hard time getting to sleep. So, I read and eventually I feel my eyes closing and I fall asleep. Just as in this book, I have a younger sister but we never shared a room. It would have been fun to have tried what these sisters did. In the dark of the night two sisters share a room but one is unable to get to sleep. She asks her older sister for help which starts a series of ideas that just don’t help or the little sister doesn’t like the idea. It is only when the older sister tells her younger sister that she is too tired to think of anything else that the younger sister falls asleep. The illustrations are done in bright primary colors. They also very reminiscent of illustrations from the fifties. The younger sister also has curly hair as my own sister did. For those who would like a story read to theme at night this would be a perfect book to choose.
