When the moon rises high and the stars twinkle, it is bedtime for the baby animals of the Indian forest. But tonight, when the skies turn dark and the night grows stormy, the little ones can’t sleep. SWISH-SWISH! CRACK-TRACK! FLASH-SNAP! goes the storm. Only Mama Elephant with her words of wisdom can reassure them. “You’re safe with me.”

The perfect bedtime story for little kids who don’t want to be left alone at bedtime 😂 the art is gorgeous as well and we had lots of fun finding the animals 😃
My kids love it every time I read this book since I get to be so animated while reading all the words and making all the sounds in the story. It’s also a reassuring reminder for them that mum will always be around to keep them safe.
