PreSchool-K-- A playful bedtime romp through the animal kingdom. Inspired by a story about Noah's Ark, twins Minnie and Max perform their prebed activities Two by Two . So, two crocodiles splashingly brush their teeth, two kangaroos jump enthusiastically on the bed, and two cubs hide from Daddy in their blanket cave. When Max begins to : cry, fearing a lion under his bed, brave Minnie discovers it's the family cat. Only then can the twins snuggle together, like two little mice, and fall asleep. That their antics are purely imaginative is revealed through colorful illustrations and creative page design. Bright watercolor paintings reveal a cozy home and a happy family. While the brief text and formulaic plot make this an excellent choice for toddlers, the large type is appropriate for beginning readers. --Jeanne Marie Clancy, Upper Merion Township Library, King of Prussia, PA

From Kirkus Reviews
After Dad reads them the story of Noah's Ark, Minnie and Max are off to bed, along the way pretending to be a pair of one kind of animal after another. The tigers who bounce up the stairs and the crocodiles who splash in the bathroom are still being kangaroos after they're tucked in for the first time; but after Max gets scared at the idea of a lion under his bed, the two at last curl up to sleep--as little mice. The animals the children imagine appear in oval vignettes on the text pages, while the cheerful children themselves cavort in their cozy home, with plenty of animal toys and pictures in evidence. As usual, the illustrations are exceptionally warm and lively. Good-humored and appealing. (Picture book. 3-6) -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
