KIRKUS REVIEW

Lying in bed, trying to fall asleep, little orangutan addresses each part of his body with a goodnight appeal. He thanks feet for running, and knees for holding legs together. He tells legs and tummy to rest and asks neck to “lay my head on that pillow.” When each body part from bottom to nose, ears, mouth and eyes has been acknowledged, mother orangutan’s soft kiss on the forehead finally brings on the long-awaited feeling of contentment to one drowsy little guy. Quay’s soft nighttime purple/blue backgrounds offset an orange-furred, droopy-eyed baby orangutan trying out a variety of bed positions in this novel approach to a familiar toddler bedtime ritual. A comforting, self-soothing pattern for little ones to quiet their tired bodies and souls. (Picture book. 2-4)
