Moo, Baa, La La La! But not the Armadillo How Big is Zagnodd? Silly Lullaby I Love You, Little Pookie
Moo, Baa, La La La! But Not The Armadillo How Big is Zagnodd? Silly Lullaby I Love You, Little Pookie
This raucous story about the sounds animals make—including three pigs who say "la la la!"—is just right for reading aloud. Told with Boynton’s signature charm and unpredictability, But Not the Armadillo is a gentle and worthy companion book to But Not the Hippopotamus—perfect for curious little kids and grown-ups alike. This hilarious book from the out-of-this-world Sandra Boynton will have Earthlings big and small giggling with delight. What’s the best way to say good night? With a silly lullaby from the beloved and bestselling Sandra Boynton. A sweet and simple board book that offers a declaration of unwavering love from Mom to her wonderful child.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

For a little one who is reluctant to go to bed, sometimes a silly book is just the ticket. And when it comes to silly books, Sandra Boynton is the undisputed queen. In The Going to Bed Book, an ark full of animals watches the sun go down and then prepares for bed. They take a bath ("in one big tub"), find pajamas, brush their teeth, do exercises up on deck (imagine an elephant jumping rope, a moose lifting weights, and a pig doing handstands), and finally say good night.
The moon is high. The sea is deep.
They rock
and rock
and rock
to sleep.
Boynton's inimitable animal characters have graced the pages of scads of picture books over the years. She has an extraordinary knack for knowing what appeals to small children: simple rhymes, goofy animals in goofy settings, and sweet, comforting stories. This book, along with her many other board-book titles (Moo, Baa, La La La!, But Not the Hippopotamus, and others) will surely remain a favorite. (Baby to preschool) --Emilie Coulter

From the Publisher

Serious silliness for all ages. Artist Sandra Boynton is back and better than ever with completely redrawn versions of her multi-million selling board books. These whimsical and hilarious books, featuring nontraditional texts and her famous animal characters, have been printed on thick board pages, and are sure to educate and entertain children of all ages.

Sandra Boynton is a popular American cartoonist, children's author, songwriter, producer, and director. Since 1974, Boynton has written and illustrated over sixty children's books and seven general audience books, including five New York Times Bestsellers. More than 70 million of her books have been sold, "mostly to friends and family," she says. She has also written (with Michael Ford) and produced six albums of renegade children's music. Three of her six albums have been certified Gold [over 500,000 copies sold] and "Philadelphia Chickens," nominated for a Grammy, has been certified Platinum [over 1 million copies sold.] Boynton has also directed twelve music videos of her songs, including the award-winning "One Shoe Blues" starring B. B. King, "Alligator Stroll" starring Josh Turner, and "Tyrannosaurus Funk" (animation) sung by Samuel L. Jackson. She lives in rural New England, and her studio is in a barn with perhaps the only hippopotamus weathervane in America.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book
Reviewed in India on February 20, 2019
This book has a special place in my heart. I got it when I was 8 months pregnant and was buying stuff for my soon to be born baby. And I am glad that I bought this. Read so many good reviews about this book and was looking for a small yet interesting board book. This one is a steal for sure.

I started reading this book to my baby when she was as little as 3 months and now that she is about to be 6 months old, she loves the way I read the book and giggles alot. Though the pictures aren’t too fascinating for her liking, I am pretty sure she is going to love this book as she grows.

Overall, a great buy and highly recommended for new parents.

Reviewed in India on August 25, 2019
The book could have been better if the figures would have been more clearer. Its difficult for toddlers to identify shapes as presented in the book.
Things I like about the book:
1) Build: Board Book
2) Story
3) Colors
Things I don't like about the book:
1) figures are not clear
2) Too many animals all together with not so clearer pictures.
3) Not engaging as compared to other books for toddler.
Better books are available.
