Reading is something my family enjoys doing. It gives us quality time together as a family, and helps us wind down at the ends of the day. We are always looking for new books to add to our library! Wee are so excited to share with you this new book that we recently added called Good Night, Baby Animals You’ve Had a Busy Day by Karen Winnick.
We absolutely LOVE IT!
If yoy have children that are animal lovers like mine, you will fall in love with this charming book. It is filled with six stories of adventurous animals who end up snuggled in for the night.
Meet six wild baby animals in this read-aloud storybook collection. Playful tigers, elephants, giraffes, rhinoceroses, pandas, and gorillas love to explore their natural habitats. But when the dashing, splashing, munching, and crunching are done, it’s time for sleep. After all, every baby animal needs to rest!
With its depiction of true-to-life animal behavior, this treasury of original stories is perfect for sharing with any toddler who is (almost) ready to say goodnight.

My Book Review:
My favorite thing about Good Night, Baby Animals You’ve Had a Busy Day by Karen Winnick is the use of onomatopoeia; which is the formation of words from a sound associated with the name (eg, crunch, splash, munch). The sing – song melodic cadence coupled with action words kept my daughters very entertained the whole time I read the book. Infact, they never let me read just one, it has to be ALL six! … Yes, it is that good!
The illustrations by Laura Watkins, are absolutely gorgeous! Her soft beautiful animals coupled with the sweetness of the story will keep your child engaged and relaxed.
If your toddler is as wild as mine, they will related to this book. All the animals have an adventurous day, then snuggle in for the night with their mama.
At the end of the book there are interesting facts about the animal featured in the book. I overheard my oldest daughter Allie, sharing her new learned facts with her friends at daycare.
Kids Book Review:
Allie (5 years old): She loved the baby tigers. She loved the fact that they played and snuggled with mom. She loved the fact that they drink milk before they eat meat.
Cora (4 years old): She loved baby giraffe. She thought he was so cute. I think she liked that he ” just wasn’t talk enough”.
