Summary from Random House Children's Publishers

Boo Boo Baby has lots of fun bouncing from animal to animal - but here comes a... rhino! 'Boo hoo!' says Baby Boo Boo, so the animals comfort her, bouncing her back to bed.

Nayuleska's thoughts
The crayon coloured style of the illustrations add to the sense of a baby being warm and snuggled in bed. Each animal on the cot mobile helps Boo Boo baby out, introducing different sounds and rhythm to the reader. I wanted to cuddle everything by the end - it's a fun way for a baby to drift off to sleep. This is toddler friendly book with rounded page corners, making it a solid and fluffy read.

Suggested read
For someone else who goes on an adventure for bed, read The Beasties by Jenny Nimmo and Gwen Millward (Children's, Picture book, 10/10E)
