It is nighttime at the zoo. The animals are asleep. All is still, until. . .

beebeebobbibobbi beebeebobbibobbi beebeebobbibobbi beebeebobbibobbi

The baby beebee bird, new to the zoo, is singing his song. . .ALL NIGHT LONG! Nothing the animals do or say will stop him. Until, that is, they come up with a plan to teach the baby beebee bird that nighttime is really best for sleeping -- especially for little birds.

The Baby BeeBee Bird, originally published in 1963, has been beloved by readers for generations. In this new-sized, full-color edition, Diane Redfield Massie's delectable story has been lovingly reillustrated by Steven Kellogg, creating a captivating bedtime story that is almost as much fun as a visit to the zoo!

Review:

After a long, hard day of howling, roaring, squawking, and hissing, the animals in the zoo are ready for a good night's sleep. Silence settles over the zoo, until... "Beebeebobbibobbi beebeebobbibobbi"!

"What," said the elephant, "is THAT?"
"That" turns out to be the newest addition to the zoo, a tiny but vocal baby beebee bird. Deaf to the pleas of the lion, the giraffe, and all the other animals, the baby beebee bird burbles happily on. "I've slept all day and now it's time for me to SING." Morning finds a lot of very tired critters, until the lion comes up with a plan to teach the vociferous bird that "Nighttime is really best for sleeping... especially for very little birds."

Diane Redfield Massie's bedtime story, originally published in 1963, has been reissued in a larger format, with all-new full-color illustrations by award-winning illustrator (and author) Steven Kellogg, whose A-Hunting We Will Go uses a similar cast of goofy, expressive animals to ease children into sleepy-time mode. Pages of The Baby Beebee Bird are cluttered with a delightful menagerie of bleary-eyed bears, snoring snakes, and exhausted eagles. This updated edition of an old favorite is sure to be a hit with a whole new generation of readers. (Ages 3 to 7) --Emilie Coulter
