The stars come out, cubs snuggle, kittens nestle, and chicks cuddle as all the babies go to sleep.

Lull your little one to sleep while counting the animals also nestling in for the night. Count the stars coming out, fox cubs snuggling, puppies piling and chicks cuddling as baby rocks gently to sleep in this gorgeously illustrated board book from bestselling author Eric Walters and award-winning illustrator Josée Bisaillon.

Eric Walters began writing as a way to get his fifth-grade students interested in reading and writing. A Member of the Order of Canada, he has now published more than 100 novels and picture books. He is a tireless presenter, speaking to over 100,000 students per year in schools across the country. He lives in Guelph, Ontario.

Josée Bisaillon has illustrated more than twenty-five children’s books, created numerous editorial illustrations for magazines and newspapers. She has been short-listed twice for the Governor General's Literary Award, and she won the Marilyn Baillie Picture Book Award for The Snow Knows. She lives outside Montreal with her family.
