Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lauri Berkenkamp
This enchanting board book based on the original picture book is half lullaby, half nature lesson. Hodgkins effectively intertwines a soothing rhythm that begins with the phrase, "if you were my baby�" with facts about the parent/offspring relationship in many animal species. Hodgkins's lullaby does a nice job explaining how animal parents help their babies take their first steps toward independence, while at the same time reassuring youngsters that the parent is also close at hand. Hodgkins ends the book with the human narrator kissing his child goodnight and explaining how he will also allow his child to become independent—but first he will tuck him in. Laura Bryant's crisp, color-saturated illustrations include detailed close-ups of the animals in their natural environments—otters in a kelp bed, bison on a prairie, and bats on a tree limb, for example. The book's language is descriptive enough to make it a compelling read aloud (or lullaby), but is easy enough for emerging readers to try on their own, as well.
