I really enjoyed this book. As a mother I can relate to how hard you are willing to try, to please your baby and insure quality sleeping time. My baby boy loves listening to this story when I read it to him because of the fabulous rhyming and unique sounds that the animals make. I would recommend this story to any mother.

This book is about a mother who is trying to get all the animals and insects around the house to be quiet, so that her baby can stay asleep. The whole time she is running around trying her best to keep it quite but inside the house the baby is also up. In the end the animals, insects, baby, and mommy are all quiet and sound asleep. This is a great lullaby bed-time book and it is a fun poem with good rhythm, rhyme, and repetition. The illustrations are very colorful and the variety of the type of animals and insects were nice. This would be a good book to get children learning about different animals is other parts of the country and can even bring in the types of sounds the animals make.

A beautiful picture book based on a mother, baby, and many fun animals in a small Thai village. The illustrations in this book give such a warm, three-dimensional feeling. A truly beautiful book all around.

This book is a fun read; the repetition, rhythm, and predictability (of both words and ending) are familiar for all readers. The illustrations are what make this book magical. Aside from creating the setting--an earthy hut in the middle of luscious Thailand where animals stir--the illustrations provide a feeling of depth to every page and a counter-story to the text. It is beautiful and simply heartwarming.

Cute- good read aloud, but may get a little redundant (kind of the point though...) Nice pictures- lots of color.

This story in rhyme and song is the story of a Thai mother and her baby son. It is a lullaby in which the mother asks a variety of animals including a lizard, monkey, and water buffalo to be quiet so that her baby can sleep.

This book has a lot of rhythm! This mom is trying to get her baby to sleep, so she is talking to all sorts of animals to keep quiet so the baby can drift off. In the end the baby is the only one not sleeping. It is a colorful book with great illustrations.

I'm 8-years-old and I love it! I have loved this book for many years. It is special to me because it involves animals, a mom and baby. I like falling asleep and pretending that I'm that baby sleeping in the hammock surrounded by animals that are waiting to see me.

Loved this pretty Thai lullaby featuring animals found in the tropics. I imagine a child could enjoy it each night and not get tired of it.

This is a fun and interactive Thai lullaby story. I love sharing a good book with my children, and it's extra special because it portrays part of their heritage.

This was recommended by a friend and it has become one of our favorite books. We misplaced it in a move, so we are buying another copy! I can read it every night and my daughter is happy to hear it over and over again. Fabulous illustrations!
