Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

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 its whimsical art and playful rhymed verse, this affectionate picture book is bound to become a bedtime favorite.

Horn Book Review

Seal and his calf would blow big bubbled kisses / that rise to the surface / in splashity splishes." Sprightly rhymes describe how various animal babies--from sloths to snakes to walruses--might kiss their parents good night. Walker makes the most of the theme by creating soft, pleasing compositions centered on the parent-child pairs. (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
