The bestselling book in Ann Whitford Paul and David Walker’s adorable animal series―and don’t miss the follow-up, If Animals Said I Love You!

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 whimsical art and playful rhyming verse, this board book is perfect for bedtime snuggles.

Favorite baby book of the year <3 Omg this book is SO freaking adorable. Read it in the library over the summer and had to buy it for our son.The first page goes “If animals kissed like we kiss goodnight, sloth and her cub, in late afternoon’s light, would hang from a tree and start kissing….” Other pages: “tiger cub and mama would kiss and then growl… wolf and her cub would kiss and then howl”The story is beautifully rhymed, the illustrations are great, and not too overwhelming or abstract like some baby books, and it has this adorable refrain every few pages of “and sloth and her cub? STILL kissing goodnight!” ahh! just so freaking cute. Probably my favorite baby book I’ve found this year, and I try to make it more engaging for our son (because it’s totally a mommy favorite) by lifting him upside down whenever they do the sloth refrain and giving him kisses, which he finds hilarious.If this was helpful, please vote.
