Synopsis- Ben and Bungee are best friends, but when they stay up all night bouncing and talking, they start getting more and more tired. When they start getting angry at each other and realize it is because they are exhausted, Ben decides to take matters into his own hands. He makes a list of bedtime rules, and he and Bungee try to follow them.

What I Thought- This was a neat concept for a book on bedtimes. Dr. Carr is a psychologist and family sleep expert and has great insights on how to get your toddler to go to bed and stay in bed. It is a unique story.  The message of the book is more of a lesson for parents to lay down some rules for bedtime. Kids can easily relate to the characters and I like that Bungee is a monkey. The illustrations are funny and make the story feel less like a “lesson” and more like a bedtime book.



This is a great debut picture book, and I will be looking for more from Dr. Carr.

I give this book five out of five bookworms.fivebooks

  1. I loved this book as well. You can see my re . . . just kidding. Nice job, Erik! “. . . a lesson for parents,” I love this. Very nice, now go to bed!

  2. Looks like a cute book that the little ones would enjoy. I had a kid who wouldn’t go to bed! Wish I had this book then.

  3. I should have read this ages ago lol. I still might 😂

  4. Love that Ben comes up with the solution! Looks like a really fun bedtime story.

  5. Thanks for this review! Already working on some ideas for what Bungee will be up to next.

  6. Mom has bedtime rules for me, too. She brushes my teeth, takes me outside, and then hides a cookie for me to find. In case I stay up too late I just flop down on the floor and take a nap…

    Love and licks,
