In this rhyming bedtime book, animal parents say good night to their little ones. The text is specific to the animal with. For example, the mother duck talking about fluffing pillows and the anglerfish talking about turning out the light.
Baby animals and soothing rhyme are always a nice way to tend the day. More bedtime book options are always a good thing for parents!
The theme and text are rather unoriginal and the illustrations are not of the highest quality.
My daughter was not interested in this book at all. She usually enjoys rhyming books, so I'm not sure exactly why this one did not appeal to her--whether it was something about the illustrations or about the story itself.
I did not really like this book. There are some clever parts. However, there are other books about animals saying goodnight to their babies that are stronger choices for bedtime. I thought my daughter would like it a bit more because of the animals and rhyming text, but I am not surprised that it is not one of her favorites.
This is a bedtime story that blends animal rituals with recognized human activities.
With personal knowledge of baby animal names, you could tell your child what the various animal babies are called.

Skip. There are not enough good features to offset borrowing this book. Libraries (and bookstores) have plenty of bedtime books that have a similar theme for this audience.
