Summary
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. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
