Review
PreS—A playful lion cub begins this story by sticking his inquisitive nose down a rabbit burrow to discover if, in fact, the bunnies are asleep. He asks this question of giraffes, elephants, and seahorses until he finally finds some owls. His nocturnal acquaintances offer to play, but the little cub's eyelids are drooping. Finally, it is Mama Lion's turn to ask the cub's question as he curls up next to her, and the story ends with a gentle shush. The small size, simple cut paper illustrations, and soothing repeated refrain make this an ideal bedtime choice. Adults will find humor in the tenacious cub's incessant inquiries, while very young listeners will be lulled by the reminder that all animals need rest, and even wild lion cubs eventually curl up next to their mothers and go to sleep. VERDICT A sweet and tender choice for bedtime sharing.—Jenna Boles, Greene County Public Library, Beavercreek, OH --Jenna Boles (Reviewed 04/01/2018) (School Library Journal, vol 64, issue 4, p101)
