    2. A very sweet rhyming bedtime story for even the youngest of babies. Each of the animal parents tells the children, in its own way, that it's time for bed. "Hopping bunnies, hop, hop, hop. Stop your hopping, stop, stop, stop! Stars are dancing in the skies, Goodnight bunnies close your eyes!" However, the owl parent is just rousing its young from a good day's sleep. After all the little ones are encouraged to go to bed (or get up) there are two wordless pages that show the animals settling down. [...]

    3. This story was a bit too wordy for my Family Story Time group, especially for the younger ones, so I made Ellison die cut felt animals for each attendee I passed them out and asked them to listen for the animal they had in their hand as I read, then bring their animal up to my flannel board. Made this book more interactive for the whole group.

    4. I like the art and the rhyme. All the animals tell their babies that it's time to go to bed. At the end of the book the little boy's bed is covered with the stuffed animals from the story. Cute.

    5. My 4 year old son just loves this book. It's simple and it rhymes and it's about animals. It's a pleasure to read it aloud!

    6. This is a gorgeous little book about various animals being told it is time for sleep - or not in the case of the owl! Beautiful rhymes and pictures.

    7. This was a great book to read to my child so much that he had to look over the book after I was done.
