Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Animal parents around the world prepare their little ones for sleep in this winsome board book, Hall’s debut. Whitlow’s (The Story of Easter) illustrations feature different adult and baby pairs in their natural habitats, but with a human touch: an otter plays with a rubber ducky during bathtime in the river; a kangaroo hops over a grassy plain in pink bunny slippers; owls nestle on a tree branch. A crescent moon and stars shine in a sky that turns from blue to purple to black by the final page, while animals follow a familiar nighttime routine: snack, bath, pajamas, storytime, prayer, lullaby, cuddle, and bed. Hall’s gentle, singsong rhymes, with one four-line stanza per page, narrate the activities; an elephant parent, for example, lifts a blanket-holding baby in its trunk while saying: “You’re ready now to cuddle down./ There’s one last thing to do./ I’ll hold you near so you can hear/ Me whisper, ‘I love you.’” First and last stanzas repeat the title phrase. Visually appealing and soothing in tone, this is a welcome addition to the bedtime bookshelf. Ages 1–4. (Sept.)

CHAPTER 1

It's time to stretch from small to tall To see the moon so bright. It lights our way and seems to say, "God bless you and good night."

Was that a little growl I heard? It sounded like your tummy. Let's get a snack then hit the sack. You're needing something yummy!

Who's ready for a bedtime bath? The bubbles reach the sky! I filled the tub, so scrub-a-dub, And watch those bubbles fly!

Now get yourself all dressed for bed. Your jammies make me giggle. You're oh-so-sweet from head to feet— Those flippers really wiggle!

Come climb up here on Mama's lap And read a book with me. I know of one that's lots of fun. Hop over and you'll see!

I'll wrap you safely in my arms And squeeze my snuggle bug. There's nothing more that I adore Than a sleepy bedtime hug.

Let's settle down and settle in And close our eyes to pray. You've wrestled, raced, and run and chased. "God, thank You for this day."

It's time to sing a lullaby. Who, who should choose the song? There's one I love 'bout God above, And you can sing along.

You're ready now to cuddle down. There's one last thing to do. I'll hold you near so you can hear Me whisper, "I love you."
