Praise For If Animals Kissed Good Night

“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
