Item description for Hush, Little Ones by John Butler...

Various animals around the world put their young to bed for the night.

Publishers Description
In simple language complemented by full-color, double-spread illustrations of loving animal families, John Butler has crafted the perfect bedtime story for parents to share with young children. This beautiful book will bring a quiet, reassuring end to a busy day.

Each animal is depicted in its natural setting as, one by one, baby animals are gently put to bed by their mothers and fathers. From tiny birds and rabbits safely tucked into warm nests and underground burrows to bear cubs resting in their dens and young whales lulled in the deep, blue sea, the noisy animal kingdom settles down for the night.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hush, Little Ones?

Beautiful story and illustrations!  Aug 10, 2008
John Butler books are my 3 year old son's absolute favorite. He is captivated by the beautiful soothing illustrations, and loves to chant along with the story being told. I have been reading this story to him since he was 6 months old, and have since bought all of the John Butler board books. They are lovely, and a wondeful bonding experience with your child!
a must have!  Mar 25, 2007
We own many John Butler books. My 18 month old has loved them since the beginning. She is active and it is hard to get her to settle down for any old book, but this one does the trick. The pictures are wonderful and the simple flowing text of Hush Little Ones makes it a must have for any little one.
Love it!  Mar 17, 2007
My daughter and I both love this book. The pictures are very sweet- each one includes a baby animal and the parent snuggled up for bed. My daughter picks this book and "While You Were Sleeping" also by John Butler, every night! I highly recommend them both.

This book makes bedtime easy!  Aug 17, 2006
I have been reading this book to my son at naps/bedtime since he was 8 months. Now, he's a good kid, but he doesn't sit still for EVERY book I try to read to him -- but this one he loves EVERY time. Even if he's fussy, this is the book I pick up first, and he usually settles down right away. If he's really fussy, he settles down by the "Zebra" page, guaranteed. You know that commercial for Staples with the red "easy" button? Well, for bedtime, this book is the "easy" button.

Even before he could understand the story or theme in a book, my son loved the "sing-song" of the text. The review on the back cover says it reads like a "lullaby", and that is a perfect description. Not too many words on a page (so he doesn't get bored), and the word choice and the rhyming make it perfect for bedtime! We rock in our rocker, with a soft lamp nearby, clean after his bath, warm in his pj's, and look at the book with the fuzzy animals in their soft bedtime environments... The pictures are simply beautiful, and John Butler adds a little, sweet, tender "character" to the face of each animal.

I loved this book so much I went out and bought several (3) of John Butler's other books, "Whose Nose and Toes," and others. However, I haven't been able to get my son as interested in them. They are a little more advanced, requiring interaction, memory, identification, etc. I think we will wait 4-5 months (when he's 2 years) before they will be age-appropriate. BUT, this book is perfect for babies and beyond! I will start reading it when our next child is 1 month old, and I am certain it will work!

I HIGHLY recommend this book for any small child. Reading to kids when they are young is ESSENTIAL for future success in school and beyond!
Perfect bedtime story for a toddler  Jul 12, 2006
John Butler is a great illustrator. I love how this books shows all the baby animals sleeping with their families, in their own habitats and how as you turn the pages the sky turns from a late sunset to evening on the last pages. This was one of my son's favorite bedtime books since he was 15 months old. Now that he is 3, we read it often and can talk about the different places where animals sleep and how they find shelter with one another.
