"There are probably not enough synonyms for 'cute' to cover this survey of hypothetical smooches between animal parents and off-spring . . . The characters radiate unconditional love." --Publishers Weekly, Starred Review "The imaginative possibilities alone make this one stand out from the glut of sickly sweet bedtime books. Sure to send readers off to a gentle goodnight . . . after a kiss, of course." --Kirkus Reviews "Lively rhythm, effective sound words, and an ecclectic collection of toddler-pleasing animals all combine to create a charming bedtime book." --School Library Journal "Using soft colors Walker renders the nighttime rituals inventively, across pages and around panels, making this gentle book a satisfying bedtime selection." --Booklist
