- Customer Reviews:
"There are probably not enough synonyms for 'cute' to cover this survey of hypothetical smooches between animal parents and off-spring . . . The characters radiate unconditional love." --Publishers Weekly, Starred Review"The imaginative possibilities alone make this one stand out from the glut of sickly sweet bedtime books. Sure to send readers off to a gentle goodnight . . . after a kiss, of course." --Kirkus Reviews "Lively rhythm, effective sound words, and an ecclectic collection of toddler-pleasing animals all combine to create a charming bedtime book." --School Library Journal "Using soft colors Walker renders the nighttime rituals inventively, across pages and around panels, making this gentle book a satisfying bedtime selection." --Booklist

The first page goes "If animals kissed like we kiss goodnight, sloth and her cub, in late afternoon's light, would hang from a tree and start kissing...." Other pages: "tiger cub and mama would kiss and then growl... wolf and her cub would kiss and then howl"
The story is beautifully rhymed, the illustrations are great, and not too overwhelming or abstract like some baby books, and it has this adorable refrain every few pages of "and sloth and her cub? STILL kissing goodnight!" ahh! just so freaking cute. Probably my favorite baby book I've found this year, and I try to make it more engaging for our son (because it's totally a mommy favorite) by lifting him upside down whenever they do the sloth refrain and giving him kisses, which he finds hilarious.
