If I were a kangaroo, I’d pick you up and carry you In my pocket, sleepyhead, And hop you gently off to bed. It’s time for sleep, and this fun-to-read rhyming tale envisions the bedtime rituals of animals from whales to otters, squirrels to gorillas. So curl up, imagine your favorite animal, and…zzzzzzzzzzz.
This bedtime book is full of "if I were a ..." rhymes as it goes through what the mother- or parent-child relationship would be like as certain animals. The sweet rhymes were fun and not all the exact same rhythm, which I liked. The illustrations were cute and added to this lovely bedtime story.
Anna Raff does not encounter many animals in New York City where she lives, but she does love drawing…and sleeping. The books she has illustrated include You Are Not a Cat, World Rat Day, A Big Surprise for Little Card, and The Wrong Side of the Bed. Please visit her at annaraff.com.
