On a summer evening in Thailand, a mother asks a variety of animals, from a mouse ("jeed-jeed") to a frog ("op-op") to an elephant ("hoom-praa"), to hush so that her baby can sleep. When everything falls silent, the mother falls asleep herself - and her baby awakens with a smile. The unusual animal sounds and rhythmic text in this atmospheric, Caldecott Honor-winning book are perfect for reading aloud: "Green frog, green frog, don't come leaping. Can't you see that Baby's sleeping?" And if you like Hush!, you'll certainly enjoy its companion story, Peek! A Thai Hide-and-Seek.

Great animal sounds. My 18 month old grandson laughed out loud at the joke being played on Mama.
