Savor the joys of snuggling—with this warm and funny story for the youngest readers.

Dog’s bed looks so cozy that Mommy and Baby Bear, Goose, Cat, Goat, Snake, the rabbits, and even Elephant want to snuggle with Dog too. Soon it’s a teetering pileup of coziness until . . . patter, patter, patter . . . along comes Mouse, who climbs to the very tip of Elephant’s trunk. How tickly! So tickly, in fact, that Elephant sneezes—such a noisy, trumpety sneeze that he frightens all the others away. All but Dog, that is, when . . . patter, patter, patter . . . little Mouse comes back. “Now this really is cozy,” says Mouse. “Ever so cozy!” Dog agrees.

Praise For So Cozy

Children will have fun watching each animal’s expression go from pleasure, as they join Dog in his bed, to irritation as each additional animal joins the sleepy bunch.
—School Library Journal

The increasingly crowded bed will amuse little ones, and the mouse’s pivotal entrance into the story is given extra drama from his solo placement against a two-page background spread of scarlet. The size of the pictures and the large, clear font give this additional value for group sharing, but it would also be ideal for a cozy bedtime snuggle session.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

It’s made for storytime, with plenty of appeal for a cozy one-on-one reading, too.
