Summary
From bestselling author Kate McMullan, a sweet rhyming bedtime story celebrating mothers' love.

It's bedtime in the jungle, but baby panda, elephant, orangutan, and leopard are nowhere to be found. Their mamas set out to look for their wayward little ones, calling them to bed with a soft lullaby. But look! The baby animals are crawling, creeping, hiding, and giggling, playfully staying just one step ahead of their loving mamas.

Kate McMullan's lilting rhymes pair perfectly with Tao Nyeu's rich illustrations, creating a dreamy picture book that is a perfect new baby or mother's day gift.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* There are countless picture books about mothers and babies, and even more about bedtime, but this charmer is a standout. In a fanciful rain forest, a mama elephant, orangutan, leopard, and monkey decide it's time for their little ones to go to bed. But where are they, those sleepyheads, those tired babies? A two-page spread shows the babies not rubbing their eyes, but strumming mandolins and sword fighting. As the moms seek, the children hide in the water, in a canoe, and finally under a tent. Once discovered, they realize they are quite tired after all, and soon everyone is dozing in the midst of luxuriant flora. The clever rhyming text, all recited by the mothers, is juxtaposed against the silent yet joyous antics of the kids who are having as much fun fooling their mamas as they are in their play. It's startling to realize the bursting-off-the-page art is only executed in shades of blue, yellow, and orange against white backgrounds; such vibrancy would normally require a rainbow of colors. With its short text and standout art, this will make a great read at storytimes, but parents and children will enjoy its humor and warmth at home as well.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Four animal mothers know that it's bedtime, but the kids-a little panda, monkey, elephant, and leopard-are anything but tired. They're playing a rousing game of pirates in the branches of a tree, and when the mothers "stomp, stomp, stomp" over to collect them, they run and hide, disguising themselves as birds and flowers. While the kids may win in the short term ("Babies, we're calling!/ We hope you are near!/ Playtime is over./ Sleep time is here"), the end is never in doubt, and none of the little ones looks too disappointed, given all the snuggles and sweet species-specific lullabies that McMullan (I'm Cool!) unspools: "Rock-a-bye bear cub,/ Come closer now, scootch/ So Mama can land/ a Panda bear smooch." Nyeu (Squid and Octopus: Friends for Always) puts together a dreamy tapestry of blue curving lines and lush botanical motifs, with accents of yellow and orange that underscore the playful game of hide-and-seek woven throughout. McMullan's rhymes are spot on in every way, and despite spiky moments of mischief, the overall impression is comforting and lulling. Ages 3-5. Agent: Holly McGhee, Pippin Properties.
