Papineau, Lucie. 2009. Lulu's Pajamas. Illustrated by Stephane Jorisch. Kids Can Press.
Lulu is a mouse who loves her pajamas. Her pajamas "smell as good as a pink dream. They are as soft as a butterfly kiss." In her pajamas, her mama tells her stories. In her pajamas, her papa sings her songs. In her pajamas, she snuggles down with Lili-poo, her ladybug. One day, Lulu decides that life would be much better if she could wear her pajamas ALL the time. Her parents let her wear her pajamas to school, but life isn't as perfect as she'd hoped. Her pajamas are now dirty, stained, and smelly. Maybe she shouldn't wear her pajamas at all if they're only going to be like that. Can Lulu's parents show her that pajamas are best worn only sometimes--at night?
