I have bought Holly Meade's wonderful book Hush! Many times for birthdays and baby showers. This was the first time I bought the library binding. The cover is great but the inside pages are poorly printed and not true to the original colors of the cut paper colors! I would not buy the library edition again.
What a sweet store that is very poetic! This story is perfect for toddlers who love repetition and rhyming. This is a great story for a child from any culture and it gives a good introduction to animals in South Asia such as the water buffalo and elephant. Children will enjoy making the sounds of the animals along with each animal. The story ends on a heart-warming note.
I purchased this book upon the recommendation of a parenting blog, and I couldn't be happier. The sweet story paired with the fun noises that the animals make keep the attention of my toddler again and again. We have fun making the noises together and talking about the animals and what they do. It also introduced a few animals that my daughter was unfamiliar with, like the water buffalo. We have had fun learning about these animals too. "Hush" was one of the first non-board books that I purchased for my daughter, and as such required a little more care to prevent damage. However, this book makes a wonderful bedtime story, and I can see why this award-winning book came so highly recommended. I have since bought three more copies as gifts.
This is a wonderful book. My kids loved having it read over and over again and looking at the baby "sleeping". I liken it to Brown Bear, but with a little diversity to you child's baby book collection. It is my go to baby shower book.
This book was one of my daughter's favorite books. It features jungle animals and the sounds that they make (much more interesting than barnyard animals). The mother is trying to get all the animals to be quiet as her young child is sleeping. The fun part, though, is how the young child is awake and playing the whole time, an ongoing joke that children love. At the end of the book, the mother and all the animals are asleep while the child is happily (and safely) awake. A really fun read for both parent and child, colorfully illustrated. You'll have fun trying to make the animal sounds. Whenever I need to buy a baby book for a friend, this is my first choice.
Loved how the animals make their sounds in this culture. I have the book with a CD. My preschool class loves to listen to this one!
A cute story about keeping everything quiet so baby can sleep but in the end baby is curious. My great nephew asks for this story to be read over and over.
I was looking for a book to hand down to my daughter from our Thai heritage and I'm not disappointed. The book is based on a lullaby so it goes without saying it has a pattern, not unlike how Dr. Seuss books do. I love this book and so does my daughter. She asks for this book all the time and "reads" it with me.
