On Oprah.com, Nibble Nibble was praised for its "detailed, friendly-looking animals. Lots of onomatopoeia and large pictures with the right amount of white space make this book a good read-aloud for very young children."
With charming paintings from award-winning naturalist artist Wendell Minor, this book is sure to "nibble nibble nibble" its way into the hearts of a whole new generation of Margaret Wise Brown readers.

Little Donkey Close Your Eyes
Little Donkey on the hill
Standing there so very still
Making faces at the skies
Little Donkey close your eyes.
Little Monkey in the tree
Swinging there so merrily
Throwing cocoanuts at the skies
Little Monkey close your eyes.
Silly Sheep that slowly crop
Night has come and you must sop
Chewing grass beneath the skies
Silly Sheep now close your eyes.
Little Pig that squeals about
Make no noises with your snout
No more squealing to the skies
Little Pig now close your eyes.
Wild young birds that sweetly sing
Curve your heads beneath your wing
Dark night covers all the skies
Wild young birds now close your eyes.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I love the combination of Brown's poetry and Minor's illustrations. Nice way to introduce poetry to preschoolers, also nice tie-ins for seasons, rabbits, and other animals.
