Human families share lots of hugs and kisses. But how do animal mommies and daddies kiss their little ones?

The little girl in this story is sure that:

  • Sloths would share slow kisses
  • Peacocks would have dancing kisses
  • Walruses would have whiskery kisses
It would be a perfect wildlife good night!

Soft rhymes and watercolor illustrations make this feel-good story a wonderful way to settle in for bedtime.

Editorial Reviews

"There are probably not enough synonyms for 'cute' to cover this survey of hypothetical smooches between animal parents and offspring—not that there's anything wrong with that."
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Walker's adorable, soft-hued animals populate simply drawn habitats with the bare minimum of detail—perfect for capturing the attention of the littlest listeners."
