- If animals kissed
like we kiss good night,
Giraffe and his calf
would stretch their necks high
and kiss just beneath
the top of the sky.
- In a cozy bedtime chat with her mom, a young girl wonders how animal families might say good night. Would Wolf and his pup “kiss and then HOWL”? Would Bear and her cub “kiss and then GROWL”? But what about Sloth and her baby? They move soooo slooowwwww . . . they’re sure to be kissing from early evening until long after everyone else is fast asleep!
- With whimsical art and playful rhyming verse, this picture book is now in board book format for the first time, perfect for bedtime snuggles.

“This is a very sweet bedtime book. It has adorable illustrations and it’s a fun read, telling the story of how various animals might say goodnight (like the rhino and her baby tapping their horns together and the peacocks dancing their feather fans). My kids and I enjoy reading this one together and they love to name the animals as we go along.” By G. Maciejewski
“It took about 6 short exposures for our 18mo to get into this book (heck, it took me a few to read it without getting tongue-tied) but now he really enjoys it. This is the longest bedtime book in our collection and he sits through it with patience and focus like no other. It’s… beautiful. He has his favorite pages (that we repeat 5x) and we connect the animals to his own stuffed ones, or those we visit at the zoo. I definitely look forward to having him read this to me one day :)” By SabaBa Mama
