Good Night, Baboon! – While the other animals get ready for bed, one baby baboon is determined to stay up! Baby baboon burps during snack time, brushes his bum instead of his teeth, plays loud lullabies on electric guitar, and runs around causing mayhem, until finally baby baboon is ready for a goodnight hug.
I love how this book is designed as a counting book, and we count down each animal group getting ready for bed. 9 skunks take a bath, 8 hamsters have a bedtime snack, 7 sloths put on their PJs, etc… and through it all, baby baboon is getting into trouble! Baby baboon manages to bounce across each page, getting into shenanigans before bed and monkeying around. I love how irreverent this book is!
ABC Dance – The animals are all dancing in a massive parade of exuberant dance moves! From aardvarks to zebras, every animal group is hopping and stepping and thumping their tails. They show off their skills with the fandango, the waltz, the can-can, the tango, the hustle, and ballet.
The whole book is hilarious and sweet! I loved the rhyming writing style, and how the book takes us through the entire alphabet with various words for each letter. The Aardvarks Arrive, and the Elephants Enchant, and the “Jack Rabbits can Jam- They’ve got this Joint Jumping.” haha! I love how fun and silly this book is! The writing uses such vivid words, and it is a joy to read aloud.
