Wie kleine Tiere schlafen gehen

How Baby Animals Go To Sleep

For parents and their sleepy child: the loveliest goodnight story book!

You can clearly see in the moon’s soft light
How baby animals sleep at night.
A kiss, a cuddle, a nuzzling nose,
And very soon their eyes will close.
This is what the animals do.
Do you like kisses and cuddles too?

How does the lion say goodnight? What does the baby mouse like best before he falls contentedly asleep? The animal children and their parents cuddle up close before they go to sleep at night just like young human children do. An absolute favourite for every child’s goodnight ritual! Eight goodnight scenes with beautiful pictures and lovely rhymes to join in with.
