Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You

The Book

This sweet rhyming book is bedtime ( or nap time ) reading at its finest.  Wee ones will snuggle up and enjoy a variety of adorable baby farm animals that are extremely tired but guess what?  They are all hunkered down in wrong barnyard beds.  Oh my! They will need help to sort out their misplacements.   This book calls for problem solving  by the reader so the animals can finally locate their very own beds and in so doing get a good night's sleep. 

"Nighttime floats across the farm.
It's time for sleep, of course.
But something here is not quite right...
Where's the pig and cow and horse?"

The illustrations are endearing, my favourite being the fuzzy little lambs.  I have no idea how the illustrator made such cute woolly coats on each of them and was able to visually capture their emotions... so fun!  This board book would make a wonderful stocking stuffer, birthday or shower gift.   I highly recommend it and I know kids will love it.
