Listener Opinions

    " Another great Pigeon book! These are extremely entertaining! They are also great to analyze illustrations and point out that they do not have to be elaborate... children can create their own book and illustrate it in a similar way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Keia Arnold | 2/11/2014

    " I thought this book was enjoyable, but I didn't find many ways it could be used academically. It could spark conversation about bed time or why it's not good for children to stay up too late. It could simply give children an enjoyable book with which to practice reading. Other than that, I'm not sure it could really be of much academic value. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jordan Gregory | 2/5/2014

    " A fun little romp. All you pedantic folks out there can ponder the homoeroticism of a "hot dog party" as you rock yourselves to sleep tonight with this Willems original. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 2/1/2014

    " Great book that puts the reader in charge of making sure the pigeon doesn't stay up late. He tries, just like every kid does who doesn't want to go to bed, to plead his case, but it doesn't work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheryl in CC NV | 1/25/2014

    " Oh my goodness. I laughed so loud my 14 yo son decided he had to read it too. He chuckled. I'm sure he'll enjoy it more when he's a daddy and his little one says 'Pleeeease, five more minutes? I'm not tired!' "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara | 1/21/2014

    " Another series i love. oversimplistic artwork with a basic storyline sometimes results in the best children's books. sometimes. snarkiness and pigeons are just perfect together. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Borduin | 1/20/2014

    " This would be a great fun-reading book for students. This book could also be read before a lesson on persuasive writing. After hearing the book, students could create their own persuasive dialogue to try to convince the reader to "stay up late". Students could also choose a different topic, such as "play outside longer" or "eat dessert for dinner", etc. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alicia | 1/18/2014

    " This is the second pigeon book I've read and it's a funny take on all of the excuses kids use to stay up late. It didn't flow nicely from page to page, it felt a little scattered, but I understood the intent. "
