School Library Journal Review

PreS-K-All of the baby animals are preparing for sleep. Each spread features a realistic painting of a different family: deer, lions, ducks, foxes, penguins, and more. The realism brings readers closer to the bedtime rituals of the wild, while the gentle rhymes temper the scene: "Wrapped up in love,/little bear feels so snug./Cuddled goodnight/in a big mommy-hug." Not all of the youngsters are so eager to comply, and children may see bits of themselves reflected back from the imagery. The text is simple and occasionally overly sweet. With all the terrific bedtime titles available, this an additional purchase.-Julie Roach, Cambridge Public Library, MA (c) Copyright 2010.
