would stretch their necks high
and kiss just beneath
the top of the sky.

But what about Sloth and her baby? They move soooo slooowwwww . . . they're sure to be kissing from early evening until long after everyone else is fast asleep!

This was such a sweet story that all little ones will love! The pictures are the best part about it by far though! They really capture your heart and make you smile and are very original. They are something you should really cherish and appriciate because currently most artists do their work from the computer but Mr. Walker really put some time into his work and did it all by hand! Children love how sweet the pictures are and thay even make them want to 'kiss goodnight!' This could be a new trick to get your kids to go to bed! Read this book to your kids and I garantee it will soon become their favorite book on the shelf!
This is such a wonderful book in every way...the illustrations, the theme, the cadence, overall it's just a great book for any age! My two and a half year old can recite this book from beginning to end and it has expanded her vocabulary. This book is the perfect bedtime story and it also makes a great gift for any child. We LOVE this book!!
This is such a cute little book for a young child. Very colorful, cute animal pictures (especially cute if your child is into animals), sweet story. My granddaughter loves it.
