Editorial Reviews

The New York Times - Sarah Harrison Smith
Tiny children will love the comforting sentiments, and older ones may find themselves memorizing the ingenious rhymes.
Children's Literature - Heidi Hauser Green
If you are looking for a comforting new selection for the bedtime story roster, consider this gentle story. Each two-page spread shows a different animal mother and her children preparing for their nighttime slumber. The first of these sets the tone: "When baby bunnies go to bed,/their mothers kiss them on the head./Inside their burrows, warm and deep, they close their eyes and fall asleep." On the next page, kittens "snuggle in their mother's lap" before they "shut their eyes and start to purr." Lambs' mothers "nuzzle them to "slumberland," while bear cub mothers "stroke them on the nose,/then grumble softly in their ear." (It is their way of saying "Good night, my dear.") Chicks enjoy mothers' hugs, pecks on the cheek, and chirps. A final spread shows all of the animals snuggled in their family groups, sleeping peacefully, "the way babies always do when mothers tell them, ?I love you.'" The oversized dimensions of this board book invite shared reading. A sweet story for celebrating the mother-child bond, this is a good selection for mothers to read at bedtime.

One by one, animal mothers tuck their babies into bed, easing them off to dreamland with snuggles and kisses. Soothing rhythms and apt and varied vocabulary make this goodnight book special. Take, for example: "When cuddly cubs begin to doze, their mothers stroke them on the nose, / then grumble softly in their ear. / In Bear that means / ‘Good night, my dear.' " The adorable animal mothers and babies--bunnies, cats, lambs and chicks, in addition to the bears--look absolutely blissful as they cuddle up and settle in for some rest. These sweet scenes are set against a bluish-purple night sky dotted with white stars that twinkle merrily down on the sleeping critters. The final spread incorporates all of the animal families at once and offers a pleasing closing sentiment: "And with that nuzzle, kiss / or hug, the animals sleep, / warm and snug, / the way that babies always do / when mothers tell them, ‘I love you.' " While this title is perfect for mother-baby bonding, it doesn't include any doting dads. Papas who want in on the action might try Anne Gutman and Georg Hallensleben's Daddy Kisses (2003) or Karen Katz's Daddy Hugs (2007). With large, sturdy board pages just right for tiny hands, this is a sweet selection for baby's bedtime. (Board book. 0-3)
