John Butler will delight the very young with this simple, interactive look at different animals and the way they move.
From leaping like a frog to winking like an owl, acclaimed author-illustrator John Butler will delight the very young with this simple, interactive look at different animals and the way they move.
Butler’s lavish portraits feature wide-eyed animals in their natural surroundings. The simple text will invite spirited responses from young children as they imitate the animals in the story, until finally, at the end, they are instructed to “Close your eyes tight and rest your sleepy head.”
“Soft, dreamy illustrations in orangy browns set against pastel backgrounds depict a variety of cuddly creatures in action. The art, with its delicate colors and detailed rendering of the layered textures of fur, gives the animals a soft, huggable look, making this a perfect title for curling up together during one-on-one reading.” ―School Library Journal
“The gentle rhymes and invitation to copy the animals’ movements in a relaxing sequence will calm both the reader and the listener as their busy day winds down.” ―A Book and a Hug
