How Do You Say Good Night?
ISBN: 0060831634

HarperCollins. 2008

There are so many ways to say good night. Pups say it with a stretch and a yawn. Piglets say it with a kiss and a sigh. Lambs say it with a cuddle and a hug. But no matter how many different ways the animals in this snuggly bedtime book say good night, they all have one thing in common: They say it with love. How do you say good night?

Please Pick Me Up, Mama!
ISBN: 1416979778

Beach Lane Books. 2009

Whether she’s up or down, whirling or twirling, dressing or bathing, snacking or snoozing, the busy raccoon in this story enjoys each moment of the day. But like many toddlers, she can’t decide if she’d rather explore on her own or climb back into her mama’s arms. Thank goodness Mama Raccoon loves to snuggle. With a lively, rhyming text and lush illustrations, this book is just right for the scores of little ones who waver between wanting to be carried by a grown-up and yearning to toddle about on their own two feet.

Who Said Coo?
ISBN: 1416985107

Beach Lane Books. 2010

Lulu is one seriously sleepy pig. But every time she snuggles in her cozy bed, she’s disturbed by the noises of two naughty birds outside her window. Whoooooo…Coooooo….Lulu must find a way to get her wide-awake pals to pipe down. But as her frustration grows, will she be able to ask them nicely?

Brimming with pitch-perfect rhymes, fun-to-say animal noises, and heaps of humor, this book is a delightful read-aloud that’s perfect for bedtime—or anytime!
