Good Night, Baby Animals You've Had a Busy Day: A Treasury of Six Original Stories by Karen B. Winnick , Laura Watkins (Illustrations)

Hardcover, 64 pages
Expected publication: January 24th 2017 by Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)
Whether they're dashing, splashing, munching, or crunching, baby animals are ever-exploring! At home in their natural habitats, baby animals learn about the world that surrounds them. When the fun is done, it's time for baby animals to go to sleep. After all, every baby animal has to rest.

Full of action, sound effects, and patterned text, each story features the adorable antics and accurate behavior of six wild animal babies: tiger, elephant, giraffe, rhinoceros, panda, and gorilla. This 64-page, beautifully designed story book is perfect for bedtime.

My Thoughts…

I read this book to my 1 year old nephew and he ooo’d and augh’d over the bright pictures that were not so busy that he could not find the animals we were reading about.      He loved the babies and the mommies.   The story was short enough to keep his attention while long enough for this auntie to get her cuddles.   

The stories were realistic in the way animals acted but not scary.    The babies acted like babies and the mommies were loving and protecting them.     This is a collection of stories with each animal getting their own and I found out the panda bear is definitely my nephews favorite.  

I look forward to re-reading this weekly with  him knowing that someday he will not want to sit on my lap and have me read to him.
