|This is my third book by Kristie Wilde, and I have been pleased with all of them—both with the illustrations and the message in these books. They go beyond the simple “children’s book” and give a deeper meaning that the reader can discuss with young children. This book’s theme is on the variety and contrast of animals, and how we as people have variety and contrast, and that’s simply okay, because God created us all different. It concludes with a page of information on the different animals featured in the paintings throughout the book.|
As with Kristie’s other books, I enjoyed looking through the art and also seeing how she added a creative touch to the text. This is a collection I’m happy to add to my library.

My favorite children’s illustrations are what I think of as “soft and fuzzy.” And that is exactly the type of illustrations in this book—so that made my heart happy. There are giraffes, foxes, sloths, penguins (!!!!), and several other animal families depicted in this book
The poetry rhymed nicely in this book, featuring subjects that most children would be familiar with in normal bedtime routine. It also goes a little deeper than just physical routine and mentions counting blessings, praying, thanking God for the day, and singing about God’s love.
My youngest sister (age 8) grabbed this as soon as I opened my packaged and “oohed” and “ahhed” over the whole thing. It definitely catches the young readers’ eye.
