Description

"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.
