‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

When Mama Can't Sleep
by Christa Kempter
Age Range: Under_5
First Mama can’t sleep because she is worried about the birthday present she should have put in the post; then Papa can’t sleep because he’s worried about the broken washing machine; then it’s Teddy’s turn to be woken up because Max has rolled over him. Max can’t sleep because the ghost behind the curtain is sighing and even Sam the dog can’t sleep. Now everyone is up. “What are they going to do now”?
The simplicity of the text together with the bright artwork makes this a comforting bedtime story showing children that parents can be anxious without emotional trauma and that they can feel safe and secure within a loving home.
