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.
