This gorgeous bedtime story inspired by "Over in the Meadow" will lull readers to sleep as they count the members of a series of animal families.

As nighttime approaches, animal parents and their children are settling down. A monkey makes a bed for her two babies, and a leopard tucks in her three little ones. By the time readers arrive at the stunning gatefold illustration at the end of the story, a herd of ten elephant babies is nodding off, and silence finally settles over the jungle.

John Butler's richly illustrated rhyming story will soothe and comfort readers of all ages.
