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)
