5 out of 5 stars

Little Koala gets lost in the forest and searches for Mommy Koala at bedtime. All the other baby animals are snuggling in for a good night’s sleep with Mommy Wombat, Mommy Emu, and Mommy Platypus. When they try to soothe Little Koala with a hug or a lullaby, it just isn’t the same as a hug or lullaby from Mommy Koala.

This picture book is adorable! Cute Little Koala is so sweet, and she’s very polite to all the other animals mothers who try to sing to her or tell her a bedtime story. She says thank you, but thinks to herself that it isn’t the same as a lullaby or story from her own mother. The whole story is just lovely!
The illustrations are beautiful with soft lines and gentle colors! Everything in the forest is winding down for the night, and the velvety illustrations are just right for a soothing bedtime mood. The story begins at sunset, and the illustrations show a golden sky gradually darkening until the stars are shining in a dark blue background.

Everything about this book is delightful!
