The internet’s “World’s Best Father,” award-winning photographer Dave Engledow, makes his picture book debut with The Little Girl Who Didn’t Want to Go to Bed, a hilarious, eye-popping, photographic bedtime tale that’s sure to make bedtime a lot more fun.
My younger daughter, who recently turned 4, is at an interesting age where she is learning so much as preschool that it can sometimes affect her sleeping patterns. I remember going through the same thing with Brooke, but having a newborn at the same time – so this has to be easier, right? Ha! Nope. Lack of sleep, is lack of sleep and when you daughter says, “I’m NOT tired!!!!”, Bob and I have some funny ways to convince them that they are, in fact, sleepy.
What happens when your child just won’t go to bed and decides to stay awake all night? Uh-oh! What’s a sleepy little girl to do when she’s stayed up all night and has a big day ahead of her? Dave Engledow first made waves on the internet with a picture he took of himself groggily cradling his daughter, Alice, like a football and squirting milk from her bottle into a “World’s Best Father” mug of coffee. Dave’s fathering adventures only got sillier, and soon he had enough pictures to publish an adult trade book, Confessions of the World’s Best Father. His work has been featured by People, GQ, the Washington Post, BuzzFeed, USA Today, the Today show, Time, and many others. Now Dave brings the playful spirit of his whimsical photography to his debut picture book—a bedtime tale that’s about not going to bed at all. The pictures are adorable, relate-able, and Bob and I have both had fun reading this book to both our girls!
