This is a delightful board book designed for the very young child - ages 1 to 5. It is perfect for young hands to hold, fondle, turn the pages, tote around the house, and sleep with. Yes, I said sleep with. Little ones who have this beautiful treasure of a book will want to cuddle up with the book as well as their own treasured stuffed animal. As we open the book, we find mama bird settling her little ones down for the night. Hush, little ones, you sleepyheads, Warm and safe in your own special beds. Turn page after page and find beautifully drawn pictures of mother and father animals as they gather their little ones and gently nudge them into a sleepy mode for the evening's rest time. Bunnies, monkeys, bears, lions, penguins all have a special, gentle way that they lull their little ones to sleep and gather them to safety. Hush, little zebra, you'll be dozing soon, By the light of the stars and the silvery moon. About the author/illustrator: John Butler is the author and illustrator of numerous books for children.

This is by far the best bedtime rhyme book for babies and toddlers. Illustrations of baby animals with their mothers. Each page an animal and a corresponding rhyme with soothing sounds and beautiful words, slowly relaxing your baby and getting him ready to go to sleep. By the time my son was 2, he could almost say the words in each page. Love it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

My mother gave this book to my son when he was just a tiny baby. The illustrations are beautiful, soft and warm... showing different baby animals with their mothers or fathers. It's a sweet book that's perfect for bedtime.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
