"Are You Awake?"

"Mm-mm. No." responds the mom in this story to her pajama-clad visitor.  Edward pries her eye open and asks a string of questions along the lines of, "Why is it dark? Why is it still nighttime? Why hasn't the sun come up yet? Why is it Tuesday?..." You get the picture. 
The dialogue is comical and authentically conveys a little boy impatiently waiting for his father, an airline pilot, to arrive home.  This is a perfect choice for any toddler or preschooler with a parent who works at night, or travels frequently. 

P.S. Don't forget to set an alarm (maybe not the toddler-pulling-your-eyelid kind) about Winter Storytime Registration next Monday, January 9th!
