My youngest loves animals of all kinds. When we see a picture book that has animals on it, she immediately asks if we can look at it. When my review copy of Good Night, Baby Animals You've Had a Busy Day showed up in our mailbox, she was ecstatic! Without waiting for me, she opened the pages and started looking at the pictures and reading about the animals. We have read it numerous times over the past month!

Good Night, Baby Animals You've Had a Busy Day Review and Giveaway
Whether they're splashing, dashing, munching, or crunching, baby animals are ever-exploring. At home in their natural habitats, baby animals learn about the world that surrounds them. When the fun is done, it's time for the baby animals to go to sleep. After all, every baby animal has to rest.
Full of action, sound effects, and pattered text, each story features the adorable antics and accurate behavior of six wild baby animals: tiger, elephant, giraffe, rhinoceros, panda, and gorilla.

Good Night, Baby Animals You've Had a Busy Day by Karen Winnick is one that I will add to the nighttime routine. With it's gentle repetition at the end of each story, there is a calming and soothing element to the book that is perfect for bedtime. If you think six stories are too long for your child, you can pick two or three animals to read about each night. I'm sure the kids will love all six of the stories.
The illustrations in this book are fabulous! This was the first book we had read that Laura Watkins has illustrated. Her images are gentle and sweet, conveying fun, happiness, and contentment in the animals on every page.
If you have a toddler that is a bit rambunctious during the day, they will relate to this book. The tiger cubs dash splash and tumble, the elephant poofs air and splashes water, the giraffe wobbles on it's long legs, the rhino charges and snorts, the panda chomps and explores, and the gorilla is always on the move.
All of these animals have an adventurous day, then snuggle in for the night with their mama for sleep.
At the end there are interesting facts about the animal featured in the book. Children that love to learn about animals will enjoy those pages.
From my 9 year old:
- I like that the animals romp and tromp all day and they always say "good night baby animal, you've had a busy day.
- All of the wild animals they put in the book are fun. The tigers were my favorite to read about - they got to meet other animals and have adventures.
- The rhino was funny because he always thought a dangerous animal was coming and then he charged, but it turned out to be something different
- The pandas had the best pictures.
- It's a great bedtime story. Any age can read it and like it. "I'm nine and I think it's a really good book."
You really can't argue with the simplicity and honesty of a child's thoughts. She really did love it and we sit on the couch and read it often. When you read to your young child, their older siblings will love to join in too.
