Marilou, a little girl with golden curls and freckles, is no fan of bedtime. Every night, her daddy and mommy use the same formula to help Marilou drift off to dreamland: she brushes her teeth, listens to a story, and is showered with kisses.
With its brilliantly coloured full-page illustrations, this book encourages small children to follow Marilou's example. At the end of the book are two suggestions for games: a contest to find the best hiding places in the house, and a role-playing game designed to make children aware of minor day-to-day problems and how to solve them.
