The gentle rhymes and vintage-styled illustrations of this tender picture book introduce young readers to an eclectic array of animal babies and the cozy comforts of parenting. From burrows to pouches, under wings and in mouths, baby animals lead us through their habitats to a young boy's bedroom. We find him -- with his parents and a menagerie of stuffed animals -- safe, sound, and ready for sleep. A lovely bedtime story. [Flying Eye Books (Nobrow)]. -Kit Ballenger (up to Seven)
Princess-child's parents say she may stay awake all night—after she prepares for bed. Minutely-detailed, many-colored, and textured illustrations contain enchanted dreamscapes that gently transport both Princess and readers to surreal sleep.
Just like wild animal babies—the panda and the penguin, the orangutan and the otter—a tiny human child drifts off to sleep while a loving parent asks, “Where's my sleepy baby?” A warm and rhythmic story to read at bedtime.
This cinematic circular tale flies young readers from sky to bed, bed to sky, and back again. A soothing text and crisp black scratchboard illustrations lit with yellow make bedtime a welcoming experience.
