Tuck your child into bed with a few endangered animals all over the world. The dreamy illustrations and lyrical prose make for the perfect lullaby to get your child ready for a good night’s sleep.
Starting in China then traveling to Asia and Africa, then across the ocean, and back to North and South America, your child can travel the world tucking in all the most endangered baby animals. Kids will learn where the animals live and their habitat with poetic ease. From the alligators in the Yangtze River to the koalas in the Eucalyptus forest and the jaguars in the rainforest, kids can notice the various sleeping positions of each of the animals.
When Stars are out and the moon’s above,
where do the wee ones go, my love?
Where do the wee ones go?
Don’t miss this peaceful, dreamy bedtime story that will encouarge your little one to tuck in for the night in their very own habitat. This would make a lovely gift for a new baby.
