Description

In a cozy bedtime chat with her mom, a young girl wonders how animal families might say good night. Would Wolf and his pup "kiss and then HOWL"? Would Bear and her cub "kiss and then GROWL"? But what about Sloth and her baby? They move soooo slooowwwww . . . they're sure to be kissing from early evening until long after everyone else is fast asleep!

With whimsical art and playful rhyming verse, this picture book is now in board book format for the first time, perfect for bedtime snuggles.

Review quote

"There are probably not enough synonyms for 'cute' to cover this survey of hypothetical smooches between animal parents and off-spring . . . The characters radiate unconditional love." --Publishers Weekly, Starred Review "The imaginative possibilities alone make this one stand out from the glut of sickly sweet bedtime books. Sure to send readers off to a gentle goodnight . . . after a kiss, of course." --Kirkus Reviews "Lively rhythm, effective sound words, and an ecclectic collection of toddler-pleasing animals all combine to create a charming bedtime book." --School Library Journal "Using soft colors Walker renders the nighttime rituals inventively, across pages and around panels, making this gentle book a satisfying bedtime selection." --Booklist
