About this item

It's time to go to bed . . . but Monkey is NOT ready. Acclaimed author and illustrator Marc Brown (Arthur) offers a fun and reassuring story about bedtime.
Every night at bedtime, it's the same problem. . . . Monkey puts on his pajamas. He brushes his teeth. He makes sure his favorite stuffed toy is safely tucked in. He says "good night!" to Mom and Dad. But no matter what, Monkey is NOT ready to go to sleep. Finally, though, with the help of his big brother, a little imagination, and a few friendly dinosaurs, Monkey might just get ready for bed.

Praise for Monkey: Not Ready for Kindergarten

"Brown's hand-scrawled text and childlike pencil-and-gouache artwork give the impression that he's on Monkey's side - and that of readers - from the very first page, creating an eminently reassuring and empathetic resource for kindergarteners-to-be." - Publishers Weekly, Starred review
