I Am Not Sleepy! by Markita Staples

It is a cute and funny bedtime story many kids and parents can relate to. The illustrations are colourful and expressive, and the characters are diverse and likeable. The book also shows some positive parenting techniques, such as validating the child’s feelings, offering choices, and setting boundaries.

However, the book was short and repetitive and had no clear resolution or message. The ending was abrupt and unsatisfying, and it left me wondering if Cameron ever fell asleep or learned anything from his bedtime routine. The book could have been more creative and imaginative instead of just listing what Cameron did not want to do before bed.

Overall, this book is fun for young children who struggle with bedtime, but it could have been better developed and more engaging. I give it three stars out of 5.
